President Ford announces plan for 
New York city that makes 
bankruptcy almost inevitable 


From Frank Vagi 
US Economics Correspondent 
Washington, Oct 29. 

President Ford todav pro¬ 
posed that federal courts'should 
be empowered to reorganize the 
finances _ of New York cLv it 
it gets into a position where 
it can no longer pay its bills. 
He announced bluntly that be 
would veto any legislation “ that 
has as its purpose a federal 
bail-out of New York city to 
prevent a default". 

. His statement makes the citv's 
bankruptcy virtually inevitable. 
It is still in doubt whether the 
city will be able to meet its 
bills due on November 14: it 
is certain that it will not have 
the cash to meet its debt repay¬ 
ments'-in early December. 

.The Emergency Financial 
Control • Board, established by 
the State' of New York last 
month to supervise the city’s 
finances, said after President 
Ford’s speech that his refusal 
to allow Government assistance 
would probably accelerate die 
city’s default. 

v “We know of no way. includ¬ 
ing increasing taxes and cutting 
expenditures, that will enable 
■the city to meet its December 
a ad January cash require¬ 
ments , it said. 

:The president announced in 
a speech at the National Press 
Club that be is sending legisla¬ 
tion to Congress to revise 
.existing bankruptcy laws. The 
Government would ensure that 


essential services were main¬ 
tained if New York d ian'tei 1 . 

The speech immediately 
prompted Senator William Prox- 
mlrc. chairman of the Senate's 
banking, housing and urban 
affairs committee, to suggest 
that Mr Ford's solution would 
cost the Government many mil¬ 
lions of dollars. 


Mr Ford said the bankruptcy 
of New York could cause some 
difficulties in financial markets 
“ but the repercussions should 
not be large or long-lasting *’. 
In the long term, the crisis, 
would be beneficial to the 
municipal bond market _ in 
ensuring - that municipal 
borrowers maintained respon¬ 
sible management. 

For the people of New York 
“ there may be some temporary 
inconveniences, but that will be 
true of any solution chat is 
adopted ”. His plan would 
protect the innocent victims of 
the tragedy and would ensure 
that there'are “policemen on 
the beat, firemen in tbe station, 
nurses in the emergency 
wards ”. 

The Administration is sub¬ 
mitting a Bill to Congress, 
which nJJI probably be acted 
uoon swiftly, that U»c President 
said would maintain essential 
public services if New York 
went bankrupt. Tt would ensure 
that tile city achieved aud 
maintained a balanced budget 
in coming years and guarantee

Irish anti-terrorist chiefs hold talks after 
move to end Herrema siege fails 


From Christopher Walker •

Monasterevin, co Kildare. . .. 

Irish counter-terrorist experts: 
and army officers conferred 
yesierdav outside che council- 
bouse where Dr Tiede Herrema 
is being hdd, after hopes of an 
end to the siege had suffered a ' 
setback. 

The meeting came after it had 
been reported that an angry 
exchange between tbe two kid¬ 
nappers had prevented a sur¬ 
render-which was agreed after 
patient negotiations by Chief 
Supt Lawrence Wrenn, che one 
man with whom the captors are 
willing to talk. 

According to a member of the 
Irish Special Branch, the dis¬ 
pute was monitored by eaves¬ 


dropping devices in._the.house 
and showed that Miss Marian 
Coyle.. was adopting a . more 
stubborn ' line tiran Mr. Eddie 
Gallagher- 

. . Her decision to oppose the 
agreement caused a postpone- 
merit of optimism among the 
' security 'forces that 'they were 
on the brink of securing the' 
safe. release of Dr Herrema. 
Soon 'after dark : on_ Tuesday, 

- army and poHce activity-'around 
• the two-storey terrace house 

indicated that some., break- 
■ through-was imminent- 

- Yesterday the shouted con*, 
versation. between Mr Wrenn 
and .tbe kidnappers continued 
up the narrow stairway of 1410 
St' Evin’s Park,.and during tbe 
morning food was once again 


sent in. Although the police 
would re real oo details of the 
discussions, it is known that 
they.have become more cordial 

After tbe setback, three 
colonels and an explosives ex¬ 
pert talked with detectives who 
have been supervising the siege 
during the past 'ten "days. 

The conference came after a 
decision at' government level to 
allow both kidnappers and their 
hostage to • receive the first 
change of clothing that has 
beeo requested since detective?

Detention orders 
on men after 
bomb squad raid 



Detention orders under.the 
Prevention of Terrorism Act 
have been served on two Irish¬ 
men being- questioned by City 
of Loudon.detectives after raids 
by Scotland Yard’s bomb squad, 
the police said yesterday. A 
girl arrested at tbe same time 
ivas being questioned _ at 
Bishopsgate, but no order bas 
been made against her. 

Tbe order against the men, 
who are cousins, enables the 
police to bold them for a longer 
period without any charges 
being brought. 

At Kensington police station 
three sisters and two mert, also 
believed to be cousins, were still 
being questioned last night. 

All eight, it is understood, are 
either related or are close 
friends. 

Farther raids are planned hi 

connexion with investigations 
into the explosion last week in 
Campden Hill Square, Kensing¬ 
ton, is wbich Professor Gordon 
Hamilton Fairley was killed, 
and the Caterham public house 
bombing in August, in which 
seven people, most of them 
guardsmen, - were seriously 
injured. 


that neither the city, nor ""w 
other American ciiy, ever 
became the Government's 
responsibility. 

If the ciiv defaulted, it could, 
with approval of the State of 
.veiv \urk, file a bankruptcy 
petition with the federal district 
court that would be accom¬ 
panied by a proposed way to 
work out with its creditors an 
adjustment of its debts. 

The court would then have 
authority to grant an automatic 
stay of suits by creditors so 
that, whatever city funds were 
available would be used for 
essential services. The court 
would be empowered to super¬ 
vise any plan drawn up to re¬ 
store the rity to solvency. 

To give the city the time to 
get its budget into balance, the 
court would be empowered to 
authorize debt certificates cover¬ 
ing new loans to the city, whose 
purchasers would have priority 
over all other creditors in 
obtaining repayment. 

These new certificates' would 
pay for the continuation of 
essential public services in New 
York, 

Tbe President left no doubt at 
all today about why the Govern¬ 
ment should not help the rity 
to avoid default- The leading 
city and state officials of .New 
York and the bankers were 
using “scare talk” to pressure 
Congress into "panicky support 
of .patently bad policy ”.

From Paul Martin 
Beirut, Oct 29 

Phil Capuco, an American 
correspondent crapped wounded 
in a hospital in the middle of 
Beirut’s battle-zone since being 
shot last Sunday, told today of 
bis plight and that of other 
patients as war In the streets 
swirled around them day and

Chicago Tribune, was rescued 
today by a Marine colonel who 
drove into the battle area in the 
American Ambassador’s bullet¬ 
proof car. 

His ordeal began when be was

they had made an attack os

“ One unlikely looking gunman 
started to cut up my press card 
with a razor”, Mr Caputo re¬ 
called. “When I protested he 
said, ‘ OK, maybe I sKt your

Tbe gunman ordered him to 
walk in the direction of a 
Phalangist sniper who loosed 
off several rounds over his 
head. When he tried to turn 
back his Muslim captor ordered 
him n> walk on and began spray¬ 
ing shots around him with a 
Kalashnikov automatic rifle. “I 
started a John Wayne zigzag, 
running up the street; but a 
bullet hit me in the right 
foot”, Mr Caputo continued. 

“I shouted to him to stop 
shooting and I crashed towards 
a fence on the sidewalk. An¬ 
other bullet grazed my head and 
a third grazed my back. I could 
not understand why-1 was still 
alive and got up again and 
started running like helL At 
this stage two of them were 
blazing away at me. Three or 
four rounds caught me in the 
left foot iust as I reached a 
corner and others hit me in the 
arm.” 

Mr Caputo crawled ala"", the 
-mid—rhe entrance to fa*h : nn. 
able Hamra Street, Bei fur’s 
•sli-nuning centre, and was c-°n-

Tory land Bill amendment to protect pension 

funds carried in all-night sitting by Lords 


By George Clark 
Political Correspondent 

-Important amendments that 
will safeguard substantial in¬ 
vestments made by occupational 
pension schemes, to which 12 
million people belong, were 
carried against the Government 
in' the Lords in an all-night sit¬ 
ting which lasted until 7-55 am 
yesterday. 

■Lady Young, who led for tile 
Opposition on the Community 
Land Bill, said it was signifi¬ 
cant that the last of the repre¬ 
sentations made on behalf of 
the occupational schemes, just 
before the House came ro the 
crucial amendment, came from 
officials of the National Coal 
Board. There are 350,000 
employees of the board who are 
nqw covered by such schemes. 

There was irony in the situa¬ 
tion that had been created by 
tfije Bill; here were the repre¬ 
sentatives of workers who 
claimed they were having their 
pensions adversely affected by 
Government’s land munici¬ 
palization measure, and it was 
tfie Tories they had to turn to. 

.The amendment that was car¬ 
ried puts occupational pension 
schemes in the same position as 
charities under the BilL Chari¬ 
ties were having preserved 


their existing rights in land in 
which they bad invested before 
“White Paper Day” Septem- 
ber 12, 1974. This land is being 
exempted from the control and 
limitations imposed by the Bill. 

The effect of the amendment 
is to exempt also land that was 
acquired by occupational pen¬ 
sion funds up to that date on 
the ground that the fund 
trustees had invested in land 
for purposes similar to those of 
charities. They would have 
suffered financial loss under 
the BiH as drafted. 

Lady Young said! there were 
12 million people in occupa¬ 
tional pension schemes, and it 
was estimated that the interests 
of 18 million dependent wives 
and children were affected by 
the proper investment of the 
funds. The pension fund mana¬ 
gers came to see her because 
they wanted to keep up the 
value of their land investments. 


since May, 1971, when the 
House 'sat all night on the In¬ 
dustrial Relations Act. Camp 
beds had been provided m 
■ various rooms, and there was a 
running supply of sandwiches 
and coffee, with breakfast of 
bacon and eggs served from 
630 am onwards. Five days and 
one night had been spent on 
the committee stage of the Com¬ 
munity Land Bill, and three 
days have been allocated for 
the report stage next week. 

Some of the main changes 
made in the 14 amendments 
carried in the Lords were :

block in Loudon, it was dis¬ 
closed last night 

Two years ago the Depart¬ 
ment of the Environment was 
criticized by the Comptroller 
and Auditor General for spend¬ 
ing more than £500.000 on 
alterations at the tower, which 
opened in 1970. 

The changes are being made 
because civil servants who work 
in the building have been 
using tbe Post Office resiauranr. 
That has led to overcrowding 
and difficulties for kitchen 
staff. 


responded quickly at question 
time when Mr Gordon Wilson, 
Scottish National MP for 
Dundee, East, suggested that 
Scottish ministers should rep¬ 
resent the Unked Kingdom at 
the forthcoming international 
talks on oil. 

Mr Callaghan said : “ I do not 
know of any special Scottish 
claim which exceeds that of 
Wales or of England. ... I 
hope and believe that the Gov-. 
eminent of the United Kingdom 
will continue to represent the 
whole of the United Kingdom.” 

_ That won cheers from both 
sides of the House, but the 
naiionaljsts protested.

Warning on altering cities’ scale 


Summonses against 
financier dropped 


By our--Planning Reporter 
. The crucial political issue of 
..the next decade might be what 
was to happen to public ex¬ 
penditure when gross national 
product 'was ' static, Mr Ewart 
Parkinson said' in his presiden¬ 
tial address to die Roys) Town 
Planning Institute last night. 

Town planners - were con¬ 
cerned with most of the choices 
for '■ allocating : resources. It 
looked, for example, as if hous¬ 
ing and social services might 
benefit, at the expense of. edu¬ 
cation and transport. . r. , 

A choice would have ta be 
'made between .public and pri¬ 
vate transport. Planners would 


have to give more attention to 
a variety of small-scale, un- 
glamorous, traffic measures 
that were not capital-intensive, 
such as bus lanes, and more 
facilities for pedestrians and 
cyclists. 

Growth of scale in our society 
had been linked with economic 
growth. People in Britain 
accepted tbe need for planning; 
what they were apprehensive 
about was the planner, Mr Par¬ 
kinson said. 

“Clearly planners are seen 
as harbingers of social change, 
that is bad enough. But more, 
the change they herald is 
generally a change of scale. 


“Small houses are changed 
into big blocks of flats; little 
shoos are changed into super¬ 
markets ; little buildings are 
changed into office sky¬ 
scrapers ; little factories are 
changed into massive works i 
green fields are. changed into 
huge council housing estates. 
Perhaps worst of all in people’s 
eyes, urban motorways change 
the scale of the . traditional 
city.” 

With no population growth 
and no economic growth it 
might now be easier to achieve 
human qualities in our environ¬ 
ment. 


Democracy faces 
three threats, 
economises told 

Three dangers threaten the 
parliamentary, .'system* Mr. 
Dick Taverne, ,QC, told guess 
at a dinner of the Economic 
League at Hutf last night. The 
centre of poEdcs needed to be 
strengthened to' safeg uard the 
system: tijat; was the strongest 
argument for - electoral reform, 

He ontlined the dangers as 
first, the parliamentary system 
-was less representative than-at 
any ti"»« since the war, with 
about a fifth of the electorate 
deprived of effective representa¬ 
tion; second, recent elections 
bad shattered ihe continuity of 
policy that industry , needed to 
prosper; third, and most serious 
of all, “we can np lpnger be 
sure that undemocratic forces 
will be kept out of power”. 


Mr Hain was refused legal 
aid twice, solicitor says 


Mr Pieces: Haim, the Young 
Liberals’, leader, who was 
granted ba-H on. Tuesday on a 
Dank theft charge, has twice 
been refused legal aid, Mr John 
Dun don, his solicitor, said yes¬ 
terday. 

It was refused by the magi¬ 
strate ait South Western Court, 
London, where Mr Hain was 
remanded on Tuesday, and re¬ 
jected again yesterday by the 
same magistrate, he said. 

- Mr Dundon’s statement said ; 
“ I am dismayed at this refusal 
Peter Hain is a man of limited 
financial resources facing a 
charge which is of the utmost 
gravity for him. 

“Technically there is no fin¬ 
ancial liHTMir g n yMi miTig tbe grant 
of legal and in criminal cases 
and am any event at die con¬ 


clusion of any legal-aid case 
the court has power to order 
the defendant to make a contri¬ 
bution in appropriate cases, 
thus protecting the public fund. 

“We now face a situation 
where Pieoer Hain may exhaust 
his financial resources before 
the conclusion of this case and 
would then have to reapply for 
legal aid,' when presumably it 
would be granted. 

“ This is a profoundly un¬ 
satisfactory state of affairs for 
the defence, and a cause for 
deep, regret 

Mr Ham, aged 25, a research 
student, of Fawe Park Road, 
Putney, was remanded on £100 
bail on Tuesday, accused of 
stealing £490 from a branch of 
Barclays Bank in Upper Rich¬ 
mond Road, near his home. 


Sir Denys Lowsoo, a former 
Lord Mayor of London, and 
City financier, died last month 
at the age of 69 within three 
hours of summonses being 
issued against him and before 
they could be served, it was 
stated yesterday. He was 
accused of conspiracy to de¬ 
fraud- shareholders in some of 
his companies: 

At Bow Street Magistrates’ 
Court yesterday Mr John 
Mathew, for the Director of 
Public Prosecutions, applied to 
withdraw summonses against Mr 
Thomas Daniel Mullins, a busi¬ 
ness associate of Sir Denys. Mr 
Evelyn Russell, the magistrate, 
granted the application. 

Mr Mathew said two summon¬ 
ses were issued against Sir 
Denys and Mr Mullins at Bow 
Street on September 10, on the 
application of the DPP. _ They 
were accused of conspiring to¬ 
gether to defraud shareholders 
of certain companies in the 
Lowson group. 

It was alleged that they dis¬ 
honestly bought shares from 
these companies at deliberately 
low prices, knowing they could 
be sold afterwards at much 
higher ones, “which is indeed 
what happened”, Mr Mathew 
said. The profit made was more 
than £5m. 

Had Sir Denys not died, 
“proceedings would have been 
continued against both principal 
defendants”, Mr Mathew said. 
The profit to Mr Mullins had 
been more than £200,000; that 
sum had been set aside, with 
interest, as restitution to share¬ 
holders in the companies 

Mr Mathew said he under¬ 
stood, that the allegation against 
Mr Mullins, aged 70, of Bright- 


stone Isle of Wight, would have: 
been contested strongly. The 
allegation would have been that - 
while playing a much lesser 
part than Sir Denys he neveft, 
the less knowingly cooperated, 
in the conspiracy. There was 
no doubt at all that the prime; 
mover was Sir Denys. . : 

It was felt that Sir Denytfs,- 
absence from the dock might 
well have prejudiced the rase, 
for the Crown, and Mr Muffins j 
might also have been prq-, 
judiced in being able to press?, 
his case. __ J. 

Mr Mathew said Triumph^ 
Investments, one of _ the com-, 
panies involved, was in liquida¬ 
tion. He also pointed out that, 
the whole of tbe profit from 
the transaction made by Sir 
Denys and his family had been 
repaid with interest. 

Mr Mullins had now retiretv; 
and had no directorships ox* 
any kind. " Neither the inrerests 
of die public nor the interests- 
of justice require what 
doubtedly would have been 
long, complicated and expensive^ 
proceedings against him”. 

Sir Deoys Lowson’s commer¬ 
cial group was worth almost; 
£200m and he was . one .of th& 
richest men in Britain. At the 
age of 44 he became the 
youngest Lord Mayor the City 

had ever had. The transacting 
mentioned in court took place- 
in 1972; a report by Depart-* 
meat of Trade and Industry 
inspectors afterwards stated that 
Sir Denys had been guilty of 'a* 
grave breach of duty as a direct 
tor. 

Mr Mullins was known as the. 
“father of unit trusts”. He 
helped to launch the National; 
Group in 1932, and later became.’ 
a dose associate of Sir Demr..

A formula would allocate an 
annual target contribution to 
tbe account by each local autho¬ 
rity, leaving the authority free 
to fix individual rente. 

The centre believes that by 
those means each council would 
be able to fix its own individual 
rents without making unaccept¬ 
ably large increases. 

ft also proposes a common 
rate of tax relief subsidy to be 
applied to both mortgage in¬ 
terest and local authority loan 
charges. That should stmt 
initially at II per cent and be 
gradually reduced over a 10- 
year period, it says.

Mother of parliamentarians launches appeal 

Oxford Union needs £750,000 to set itself on a firm financial footing 


Dy Philip Howard 

The mast famous debating 
society in Britain after Parlia¬ 
ment herself yesterday laun¬ 
ched an appeal to ensure that 
it has a future. 

The Oxford Union needs 
£750,000 to pay off debts; to 
repair its High Victorian build¬ 
ings ; to set up a pension fund 
for its staff; and ro keep sub¬ 
scriptions within the range or 
impoverished undergraduates. 

The most eminent lawyers in 
England have spent about two 
>ears working out a scheme 
that will euable the appeal to 
he- classed as a charity. _ That 
lias- been done by creating a 
charitable associate of the 
union to be called the Oxford 
1-iterarv and Debating Union 
Trust. 

Walking paradigms of the 
Oxford Union manner, from Mr 
Harold Macmillan. Lord Hail- 
sham of St Marylebone, and Mr 
Robin Day to the present 
officers, launched the appeal 
and gave a virtuoso perform¬ 
ance of that manner. This is 
hard to define and impossible 
for outsiders to acquire arti¬ 
ficially- But it consists partly 
of.a love of the sound of one's 
own voice, and the narcissistic 
ability to stand up and talk 
r.bnuc oneself with great wit 
.md urbanity, while pretending 
to. be talking about more 
abstract matters. 

Mr Macmillan, who heard 
Lloyd George, smuggled! in past 
a barrage of mangold-wurzels, 
address the union in 1913, em¬ 
bodied in bis performance the 
justification for subscribing to 
save the state of the union. He 
was so acute and witty, and 
timed his pauses so master¬ 
fully, that he might almost have 
been launching himself into 
politics again, as the saviour 
from Birch Grave in the style 
of de Gaulle, instead of asking 
foe money. 

He said; “ The tradition of 
civilized debate for which the 
Oxford Union stands is more 
necessary today than ever 


before. We must try to cling 
to government by discussion, 
argument, and debate, rather 
than lapse into anarchy and 
force. For the first time for 
many years the whole idea of 
discussion and debate under 
rules of order and traditions 
of speaking is threatened in 
many parts of the world.” 

Examples of the Macmillan 
manner: “Tbe union gave men 
like Gladstone their first chance 
to speak in public (pause ;; that 
stern, unbending hope of the 
Tory party as a young man 
(pause); but people change, 
(laughter, followed by long 
pause). Michael Foot, a union 
man, is perhaps the new hope 
of the Tory Party.” 

On the money needed: “ I 


should like to get this amount 
so that we can stop paying 
usurious rates of interest on our 
debts (pause); and a little over, 
so that we can start attracting 
usurious rates of interest from 
the bank.” 

He said: "This is a cause 
not just for the union and the 
university. It is fundamentally 
the cause of, preserving the 
system of civilized debate on 
which our political life is 
based.” 

Lord Hailsham , gave an 
equally characteristic and en¬ 
gaging demonstration of tile 
Hogg manner. It included,an 
unpublished anecdote and imita¬ 
tion of Sir Winston Churchill. 
During his 1930s in the wilder¬ 
ness Winston sat down beside 
the young Quimin Hogg in the 


union, much moved by a union 
ovation, and said (funny Win¬ 
ston voice): “The British, are 
said to be an unemotional 
people; but the truth is, if 
you can speak, you can do any¬ 
thing in this country.” 

The performances by the stars 
of the manner justified the 
Oxford Union as an important 
part of the national heritage of 
oratory, democracy, and hot air, 
worthy of a grant by the Depart¬ 
ment of the Environment and 
another by the Arcs Council. 
Those who wish to contribute 
to the preservation of our 
native butterflies and peacocks 
of debate and of our traditions 
of urbane discussion are invited 
to send their money to: Oxford 
Union Appeal, Frewin Court; 
Oxford OX1 3JB.

Mr Macmillan praises Mrs Thatcher’s leadership 


Mrs Thatcher will make a 
good prime minister, Mr Mac¬ 
millan tells Professor Robert 
McKenzie in the second and 
final part of The Past Masters, 
his retrospective view of former 
prime ministers, which will be 
broadcast on BBC television 
tonight (a Staff Reporter 
writes). 

Asked by Professor McKenzie 
if it would be an electoral asset 
that the Conservative Party was 
now led by a woman, Mr Mac¬ 
millan says that he does not 
think it will make much differ¬ 


ence. “Fll be quite frank and 
say I don’t think it would have 
worked 20 years ago, or even 
10 years ago ”, he adds. 

He believes that a woman, 
however clever, could not have 
run the country during the last 
war or coped with the enormous 
problems that faced an empire 
that had to be dissolved. 

On the attempt, much encour¬ 
aged by Lord Beaverbrook and 
Lord Rothermere, to depose 
Stanley Baldwin as leader of 
the Conservatives after their 
defeat in the general election 


of 1929, Mr Macmillan makes a 
remark that can be interpreted- 
as an oblique comment on more 
recent events. 

“Nobody likes losing, appar¬ 
ently either at football or at 
politics. They get very angry ”, 
he says. “They say if we have 
lost we had better get another 
centre forward. The moment 
there is an election both sides 
say what we want is another 
centre forward, particularly 
the Tories. They are very bad 
at it.” 

He compares the political 
atmosphere in the 1930s to that 


of today. People in both periods 
wanted contradictory things. 
“Now what do they want? 
They want to stop inflation but 
they all want 35 per cent wage 
increases. They want to have 
economies in public and local 
government expenditure but 
they want new hospitals, new 
roads, new everything. They 
want contradictories. At thar 
time they passionately wanted 
peace but they wanted to stand 
up to the dictators.”

4 Cod war ’ 
committee 
recalled 

From. Our Correspondent 
Hull 

The trawler industry’s action 
committee set up during the Jast 
Icelandic fishing grounds “cod 
war” has been called to meet 
at Hull on Tuesday. 

Trawler owners, skippers, 
mates, guild officials and deck¬ 
hands’ union leaders sit on the 
committee, which, during the 
last .cod war, drew up a cade of 
conduct, fixed penalties for 
breaches and advised_ the 
Government on skipper liaison 
officers to serve with naval 
patrols. 

Britain’s fishing limit agree¬ 
ment with Iceland expires on 
November 13, after which traw¬ 
lers will be expected to recog- 
rize Iceland’s _ unilaterally 
declared 200-mile limit. 

Skipper Tom Neilsen, secre¬ 
tary of Hull Trawler OFficers’ 
Guil£, who returned yesterday 
after discussions at the Ministry 
of J , Agriculture, Fisheries and 
Food, in London, said : “ All we 
are concerned about is the 
safety of our ships and crews 
after November 13. We expect 
another meeting with the Ice¬ 
landic Government in Reykja¬ 
vik next week.” 

The skippers have the sup¬ 
port of MPs on both sides_ of 
the House for naval protection

Five million research tests with 
animals 4 might not be enough’ 


By Pearce Wright 

Answering criticism of the 
use of animals id research. Pro¬ 
fessor W. D. M. Paron, or 
Oxford University, chairman of 
the Research Defence Society, 
said, yesterday that the five 
million experiments a year per¬ 
mitted under the Home Office 
licensing system might not be 
enough. He suggested that the 
idea of five million being too 
large a number was accepted 
glibly by anti-vivisection!sts and 
others opposing experiments 
with animals. 

He rejected proposals for re¬ 
writing the Cruelty to Animals 
Act which would impose stricter 
measures, but he favoured sug¬ 
gestions for more detailed in¬ 
formation to be made available 
by the Home Office on the 
nature of experiments being 
approved. In bis view that 
would show the relative impor¬ 
tance of the various types of 
research. 

The conflict between research 
workers who believe regulations 
governing their work are strin¬ 
gent enough and other scien¬ 
tists and protection organiza¬ 
tions seeking tighter controls 
was made clear by Dr A. S. V. 
Burgen, Director of the National 
Institute for Medical Research, 
in the Stephen Paget Lecture to 
the society. 

“We now expect any poten¬ 


tial new drug to go through a 
most extensive battery of toxi¬ 
city-testing in animals ”, he 
said. “This battery has grown 
in the wake of the tragedy of 
thalidomide and has been fed 
by the phobia of pollution until 
the difficulties placed in the 
way of bringing new agents into 
use have been so great that in 
some areas, such as drugs for 
rarer ailments and for some 
tropical diseases, the commer¬ 
cial return has become so prob¬ 
lematical as to stifle research.” 

Referring to "manifest ano¬ 
malies ” in the present situation, 
he gave as an example marma¬ 
lade, a food regarded as 
thoroughly virtuous. It was very 
unlikely, he said, that orange 
oil would pass all the safety 
rests for new food additives, 
especially since one oE its con¬ 
stituents, tangeretin, caused 
foetal deaths when injected into 
pregnant rats. 

Dr Burgen explained how, 
when the expansion^ of animal 
resting was first introduced, 
difficulties soon became appar¬ 
ent. In many ways there was no 
good yardstick for using animal 
tests to predict possible harm¬ 
ful effects in humans. There 
was often great disparity be¬ 
tween tests on different animals 
and no way of knowing which 
ones should be noted- 

Because of the clumsiness of 
conventional testing, much 


effort was going into finding 
new ways based on tests with 
bacteria and other culture 
systems in which very large 
numbers of experiments could 
be done. 

The main areas of criticism 
in the use of animals were for 
cosmetics and toiletries, such as 
lipsticks and shampoos, for 
weapons, and such products as 
tobacco. 

Professor Paton listed re¬ 
search in chose subjects thar he 
thought acceptable under the 
terms of the Research Defence 
Society. They were experiments 
in which undue cruelty to ani¬ 
mals had been suggested by the 
science advisory group to the 
Royal Society for the Preven¬ 
tion of Cruelty to Animals, and 
other groups. 

' One was the injection of nico¬ 
tine into monkeys. The experi¬ 
ments are alleged to show that 
nicotine produces a state of 
arousal io the brain that is 
much closer to the normal state 
than that produced by caffeine 
or amphetamine. Professor 
Paron maintained that this work 
was important for understand¬ 
ing the smoking habit. 

Tests on a building material 
as a substitute for asbestos^ to 
reduce the risk of producing 
cancer in those engaged in 
manufacturing, was also con¬ 
sidered an important piece of 
research for safety. 


Children Bill change 
may be opposed 


By Fat Healy 
Social Services 
Correspondent 

New attempts may be made in 
the Lords tomorrow to restore 
to the Children Bill a provision 
preventing parents from sud¬ 
denly removing their children 
from care. 

The National Foster Care 
Association is considering 
pressing for restoration after 
tile Commons defeat of .com¬ 
mittee amendments designed 
to make parents give from two 
to 28 days’ notice, depending 
on how long the child has been 
in care. 

Mr Robert Gee, vice-chair¬ 
man, said last night that the 
association was angry and dis¬ 
appointed. “ It is very import¬ 
ant that children should be 
protected from sudden re¬ 
moval, and we are considering 
pressure to restore the com¬ 
mittee ffloendmenra ”, he said. 
"But we do not warn to da 
anything to jeopardize the pas¬ 
sage of the Bill.” 

The Government _ has made 
ooe concession by inserting a 
clause allowing for 28 days’ 
notice of intended removal to 
be given after tbe_ child has 
been in care for six months. 
The Bill originally provided for 
notice to apply only where 
children bad been in care for 
12 months or more. 

The new time limit was wel¬ 
comed yesterday by the British 
Association of Social Workers 
and the National Council for 


One Parent Families, although 
both had reservations. 

Mrs Janie Thomas, chairman 
of tie association’s family and 
children’s section, said k would 
have been difficult to enforce a 
two-day notice period, because 
parents would be able to defy 
it. But children should be pre¬ 
pared for a return to their 
natural parents as a matter of 
social work practice, not legisla¬ 
tion. 

Mrs Margaret BramaU, direc¬ 
tor of the council, said it would 
have preferred the notice to be 
reduced to 14 days, which 
would have given local autho¬ 
rities time to take any neces¬ 
sary action. 

The Government also re¬ 
moved a clause allowing local 
authorities to rake children 
into care if their emotional 
needs warranted it or their 
development would be impaired 
or stunted if they were re¬ 
turned to their parents. 

Mrs Thomas and Mrs 
BraxxutiL who feared lest the 
clause should give local autho¬ 
rities too much power to re¬ 
move children from their 
parents because of poverty, 
said they were delighted. 

Mr Gee, whose association 
pressed for the clause to be 
inserted, said he would not be 
pressing to restore it. . 

The Bill has completed its 
Commons stages and now re¬ 
turns to the Lords for final 
consideration of the amend¬ 
ments. 


Churches 

reject 

programme 
for study 

By Clifford Longley 
Religious Affairs Correspondent 

The British Council of 
Churches conducted its own 
“great debate” on the moral 
and spiritual health of the 
nation yesterday, but firm con¬ 
clusions eluded it. There was 
some but not general, support 
for one Archbishop of Canter¬ 
bury's appeal to the nation two 
weeks ago, and the debate 
ended in confusion. 

A precise programme for the 
next five years was put for¬ 
ward in the final speech of the 
debate by Dr Kenneth Greet, 
general secretary of the Metho¬ 
dist Conference, but it was im¬ 
mediately challenged as an in¬ 
accurate reflection of the 
mood of the council. 

Dr Greet took up the call of 
the Archbishop of Canterbury 
for small groups to study topics 
such as leadership, economic 
priorities, and violence. He 
suggested they could report 
back within five years and 
might lead to a climax, a “shop 
window for the church ”, in 
1980. 

The attempt of <ke chairman, 
the Rev Arthur Macarthur, 
general secretary of the United 
Reformed Church, to take a 
“straw” vote was challenged 
as well, and the discussion 
petered out, with Mr Macarthur 
saying that he hoped the exe¬ 
cutive committee would agree 
to " reflect on the debate ” and 
report back. 

The debate was a conse¬ 
quent e of a long discussion at 
last April’s council meets inti, 
and on a survey of attitudes in 
the community by assembly 
members since then. There 
was much exasperation yester¬ 
day among council members at 
the inconclusive outcome.

Channel ferry 

F & O, whose withdrawal of 
the ferry Eagle from service 
recently led to a strike, is to 
enter the short-sea ferry market 
to France next spring, it was 
announced yesterday (our Ship¬

The 3,300-ton ferry Lion, 
which is operating on the 
Ardrossan-Ulster route, will 
operate about four services each 
way daily between Dover and 
Boulogne, if negotiations suc¬ 
ceed. Another P & O ferry, the 
4,40Ckon Panther, is being 
transferred from the Sou champ¬ 
ion-San .Sebastian route to 
Aberdeen-Shetiand, giving Ler¬ 
wick its first drive-on sendee.

be recommended by the con¬ 
stituency executive of the Con¬ 
servative Party at Caithness and 
Sutherland as prospective 
parliamentary candidate for the 
next election. In the last election 
the* seat was won bjr Mr R. 
MadLennan, Labour,' by a 
majority of 2,560. 

Antisocialist journal 

Mr Ross McWhirter, joint 
editor of The Guinness Book of

MP challenges ruling 
by magistrate 


By Our Legal Correspondent 

The refusal by a stipendiary 
magistrate to allow a small 
company on a criminal charge 
to be represented in court by 
its director is likely to be raised 
in Parliament. 

Mr Kenneth Weetch, Labour 
MP for Ipswich, is to put a 
question on the case, and has 
written to the Lord Chancellor. 
Letters had been written to all 
MPs by the director involved. 
Mr John Watson, chairman of 


Homes, estate agents who carry 
out cut-rate conveyancing. 

Earlier this month Homes 
was charged at Greenwich 
Magistrates’ Court with 
breaches of the Solicitors’ Act, 
1957. 

Mr Prys Jones, the magis¬ 
trate, refusing to allow Mr 
Watsou to speak, said a solicitor 
or counsel had to be employed ; 
he had no discretion to permit 
Mr Watson to defend the com¬ 
pany- 


Rates are not included in 
price control package 


By Our Political Staff 
Cabinet ministers sought the 
earliest opportunity yesterday 
to refute suggestions that the 
Government was considering a 
" price control ” on rates- 

Mr Crosland, Secretary of 
State for the Environment, told 
a meeting, of Labour back¬ 
benchers that the Government 
had no such intention. 

The Department of Prices and 
Consumer Affairs issued a state¬ 
ment that reports implying that 
rates would be included in the 
price control package were in¬ 
correct. 

The confusion had arisen 
after a meeting the previous 
day between Cabinet ministers, 
including Mrs Williams, Secre¬ 
tary of Stare for Prices and 
Consumer Protection, the Con¬ 
federation of British Industry, 
and the Retail Consortium. 

Mrs Williams told that nieet- 
ingl’after being questioned, that 
increases in rates next year 
«<?re expected to be Jess than 
in the present year as a result 
of jthe Government's counter-in¬ 


flation policy &nd a nil rate of 
growth in the field of local 
authority spending. 

It appears that the remark 
was unintentionally misinter¬ 
preted by some representatives 
of the Retail Consortium, and 
ministers as a consequence felt 
bound to restate the Govern¬ 
ment’s position. 

Labour backbenchers, who 
■were attending a special meet¬ 
ing of the Parliamentary 

Labour Party on local authority 
expenditure, were told by Mr 
Crosland that he was not in a 
position to speak about cash 
limits and the rate-support 
grant. The Government, he 
said, had not reached a con¬ 
clusion, because negotiations 
with the local authorities were 

still three weeks away. 

Mr Crosland told MPs that 
he had no powers to control 
the rates imposed by local auth¬ 
orities. “That remains a matter 
fnr their discretion, and the 
Government has no inrention 
of ihterferine with that discro- 
lion ”, he said. 


£72,000 damages against husband 


Mrs Susan Franklin, aged 27, 
way awarded £72,500 damages 
in -the High Court yesterday for 
injuries sustained in & car 
accident which left her para- 
Ivscd. Mr Justice Caulfield held 
that her husband, Stephen, 
drfier of the car in which she 
wav injured, teas “wholly 


responsible for this terrible 
tragedy''. Mr Franklin’s in¬ 
surers will pay the damages. 

Mrs Franklin, of Rayleigh,' 
Essex, has been paralysed in 
her arms, leg? and body since 
November, 1972, when her 
husband's car was in collision 
with another. 


Whole country of 
farmland lost 
every five years 

By John Young 
Planning Reporter 

Every year in England and 
Wales more than 300 square 
miles of farmland is lost ro 
development. Lord Goodman 
said in London yesterday. That 
meant char every five years we 
lost an area of landscape bigger 
than the whole of Berkshire. 

He was launching an appeal 
for £500.000 to support the work 
of the Council for the Protec¬ 
tion of Rural England, coincid¬ 
ing with its fiftieth anniversary. 

Mr Christopher Hall, the 
council’s director, acknowledged 
yesterday that it was a bad time 
to be raising money and that 
the council’s work was difficult 
to define ro the public, unlike 
the restoration of a specific 
cathedral or the National Trust's 
Enterprise Ncprune campaign 
to protect the coastline. 

To publicize its activities, the 
council has produced a booklet 
listing some of its campaigns in 
the past haif-cenrury. 

In 1936 The Times said of its 
work; “The lover of the 
English scene may shudder to 
think whar would have 
happened but for these ten 
years of fils I cautious but per- 
sistent effort.” 

Present dangers are said to 
include the loss of cover and 
destruction of hedgerows due 
ro industrialized farming. North 
Sea oil land acquisition orders 
and the release of green belt 
lend for development. 


Another £lm likely for adult illiterates 


By Our Education 
Correspondent 

The Government is likely to 
announce a second grant of Elm 
to help the campaign to teach 
the country’s estimated two 
million adult illiterates in read. 

Lord Crowiher-Hunr. Minister 
of Stare at the Department of 
Education and Science, with 
responsibility for higher educa¬ 
tion, told a conference organ¬ 
ized in London yesterday by 
the National Committee’ for 
Adult Literacy that he hoped 
the Government would be able 
to moke an announcement 
soon. 

The Government gave the 


Adult Literacy Resource Agency 
Elm Jast year to start the 
campaign. 

Professor Maurice Pesron, 
who was adviser to Mr Prentice 
when he was Secretary of State 
far Education and Science, 
said: “ J would assume that 
there will be another Elm.” 

The professor was chairman 
of the conference at the end 
of which Mr Geoffrey Clarkson, 
the committee’s chairman, said 
that it had only £150 left to 
carry - on the campaign. 

Lady Plowden, the com¬ 
mittee’s president, has told 
The Times that the Govern¬ 
ment’s Elm grant last year had 


much to do with the way liter¬ 
acy work had been revolution- 
ized. 

She said that 18 months ago 
only half the country’s educa¬ 
tion authorities were doing 
anything to help adult illiter¬ 
ates. Now every one had applied 
for money and was doing some¬ 
thing. 

“It is now vital that the 
Government resolves the pres¬ 
ent uncertainty about its inten¬ 
tions and assures those working 
in adult literacy that a further 
grant wifi be made available to 
enable the Adult Literacy Re¬ 
source Agency to continue its 
development work”, she said- 


Chairman of the Bar calls 
for fewer mass trials 


By Our Legal Correspondent 

The length and complexity of 
j criminal trials could be reduced 
I if the prosecuting authorities 
j would .stop putting so many 
I defendants on the same indict¬ 
ment. Sir Peter Rawlinson, QC, 
chairman of the Bar, said yes¬ 
terday. 

There were too many mass 
trials with numerous defendants 
j in the dock together charged 
jointly on a. complicated ijnlici- 
ment, he said. That inevitably 
led to a long court hearing and 
created immense difficulties fur 
judge and jury. 

Sometimes separate trials oE 


individuals would be speedier 
and more efficient, Sir Peter, a 
former Attorney General , con¬ 
tinued. He was speaking at a 
graduation ceremony of the 
Kingston Polytechnic School of 
Law. 

The prosecuting authorities 
were responsible for determin¬ 
ing the length and complexity 
of trials. They should, long 
before trial itself, give greater 
consideration to the possible 
consequences of putting a large 
number of defendants on one 
indictment. A great deal nf 
time and public money would 
be saved if rhere were fewer 
trials of that kind.

WEST EUROPE, 

M Giscari sees signs 
that economic aid 
is bringing recovery 


From Charles Hargrove 
Paris, Oct 29 

President Guscard cTEstamg 
todaV told the Cabinet at its 
weekly meeting that the Gov¬ 
ernment’s reflation plan an¬ 
nounced last month had already 
begun to make itself felt. 

‘ M Jean-Pierre Fourcade, The 
Minister of Finance, said the 
economy bad started on the 
road to recovery, but it was toq 
early for this to be reflected 
in employment. 

He added that the movement 
of prices (03 per cent increase 
in September as against 0.5 to 
0.6 per cent planned by the 
Government a year ago) was 
still a cause for concern. This 
had led the Government to pro¬ 
pose new regulations to limit 
profit margins. 

The President scotched 
chronic rumours that elections 
might be called before the 
appointed time in order to con¬ 
solidate his majority in Parlia¬ 
ment, which, according to the 
leaders of his own Independent 
Republican Party, does not 
reflect the true state of poli¬ 
tical opinion. 

A recent poll published by 
France-Soir showed that in the 
event of elections, the Presi¬ 
dent’s party would pull away 
ahead of the Gaullists, although 
this is scarcely corroborated bv 
the impressions of almost all 
political observers. 

Such speculation, however, 
has been cut short by M Gis- 
card d’Estiling’s remarks at to¬ 
day’s Cabinet meeting. “There 
will not be any political elec¬ 
tions in 1975 and 197G ", he said. 
“This is the occasion for the 
Government and the presiden¬ 
tial majority to pursue their 
policy of reform in depth, in 
peace and quiet, undisturbed by 
useless polemics. This is, at 
the present time, the best way 
to serve France.” 

The Government spokesman 
said that by his statement, M 
Giscard d’Estaing wished to end 
rumours of those who “ thought 


they perceived in some discos, 
sions, normal within the Gov- 
eminent majority, the sign of 
sinister rumblings”. 

M Michel Guy, the Minister 
for Culture, told the Cabinet; 
that in accordance with its 
derision on October 8, when 
the President came out strongly 
for a check on the _ flood of 
pornography in the cinema, he 
had started discussions with 
the film industry to limit the 
production and showing of 
pornographic, perverted or 
violent films. 

A charter of “ professional 
self-discipline” had been dra»n 
up. It provided that such films 
would no longer be distributed 
by the big circuits, that is in 
the 400 most important cinemas 
'which account for half the 
total market. 

They would be screened oiiJy 
in specialized cinemas, esti¬ 
mated at between 1.00 and 200. 
No financial support would be 
given to these cinemas, and. 
publicity by pictures or com- 
meat would be forbidden. 

Films which _ undermine 
human dignity will be pro. 
hibited. Under a law recently 
passed by Parliament the pro¬ 
duction and screening of porno¬ 
graphic, perverted and other 
such films will in future be 
subject to VAT at the maximum 
rate of 33 per cent, instead of 
17 per cent as before, and the 
income and emoluments of 
producers, actors and script- 
writers will be subject to a tax 
of 50 per cent. 

There has been a good deal 
of controversy in the press and 
in the film industry about 
these measures. Some left-wing 
producers and newspapers have 
argued that they could be used 
to penalize or ceusor films 
which were politically chal¬ 
lenging or unorthodox. 

But the public is obviously 
worried about the current wave 
of violence and pornography, 


Shore hint that Britain 
may curb imports 


From Michael Hornsby 
Brussels, Oct 29 

Mr Peter Shore, Secretary of 
State for Trade, made it clear 
here today that the Govern¬ 
ment reserved the right to im¬ 
pose Import restrictions and 
take other measures to protect 
British industry from the 
effects of the recession. He 
would not be drawn, however, 
on the precise form such action 
might take. 

He was speaking at a press 
conference after meetings with 
Mr Michel Toussant, the Bel¬ 
gian Minister for Foreign 
Trade, and Sir Christopher 
Soames, the EEC Commissioner 
responsible for external affairs. 
Mr Shore is on a tour of EEC 
capitals which has already 
taken him to Paris and The 
Hague. He will be in Rome 
tomorrow and in Bonn on Fri¬ 
day. 

Pressed on the question nf 
possible import controls, Mr 
Shore said that while sharing 
the general ivorries about group¬ 
ing protectionism he had always 
emphasized that the British 


Government could not rule ant 
the heed for measures “to 
safeguard particular British 
industries that might otherwise 
be overwhelmed”. 

Asked whether such action 
might not encourage the pro¬ 
tectionist trend in America 
which the EEC was anxious io 
moderate, Mr Shore agreed that 
“we would wattt to weigh up 
very carefully the possible 
effects of any particular res¬ 
triction on others”. 

During his talks tills week, 
Mr Shore said, a suggestion 
bad arisen for a meeting of EEC 
Trade Ministers, probably in 
December, to discuss the pros- 
peers for a revival of world 
trade. He described the pro¬ 
posal as “ interesting ”. 

On his own attitude to the 
EEC, Mr Shore maintained 
that while he accepted the ver¬ 
dict of the British people he 
saw no reason to retract any 
of the views he had expressed 
as a prominent ami-Marketeer 
during the EEC referendum 
campaign. “ The problems have 
not disappeared, they are still 
there ”, he said. 


Icelandic Cabinet 
discusses Bonn 
fishing proposals 

Reykjavik, Oct 29.—The Ice¬

solve the fishing dispute 
between the two countries. 

They were put forward yester¬ 
day by a West German delega¬ 
tion headed by Herr Hans- 
JGrgen Wiscfinewski, the

The details have not been 
published, but Herr Wischnew-

Last stage of 
Surinam 


The Hague, Oct Z9.—The 
Dutch Upper House of 
Parliament has approved a Bill 
to grant Holland’s South 
American territory of Surinam 
independence on November 25 ■ 
after 308 years of colonial rule. 

The Senate voted 53 to 22 last 
night in favour of the legisla¬ 
tion, passed by the Lower House 
last week by 106 votes to five. 
Surinam lies between Guyana- 
and French Guiana and has 
about 160,000' inhabitants. Its 
Parliament will convene next 
week to approve its own consti¬ 
tutional law providing for 
independence.—Reuter. 


France begins to forget 
about Mme Claustre 


From Our Own Correspondent 
Paris, Oct 29 

The interest of the French 
public in Mme Fran^oise 
Claustre, the ethnologist de¬ 
tained for 18 months bv the 
Tubu guerrillas of the Tibesti 
region in Chad, has subsided 
almost as rapidly as it was 
aroused by a television broad¬ 
cast at the beginning oF Sep. 
tember. 

This does not displease the 
Government whose handling of 
the affair has been cJumsv and 
uncoordinated. Its attempts to 
save her from the clutches of 
Mr Hissen Habre, the Tubu 
guerrilla leader, threatened to 
imperil its policy not only to- 
wards Chad but also towards 
other black African states. 

General Malloun, the Chad 
head of Stare, repeated in a 
television interview last night 
his accusations that the French 
Government had condoned the 
dehvero of weapons to the guer- 
nnas. by guaranteeing the arms 
deals concluded by M Pierre 
Claustre. the ethnologist’s hus- 
band. The French negotiators 
had agreed to close their eves 
t0 M Claustre’s activities. 

He based his allegations oo 
the evidence of two former 
nu Tv who had rallied to the 
Chad Government side. One 
said that M Claustre was com- 
missioned to transport arms to 
the Tibesti in a DC4, while two 
negotiators were to deliver 
non-imiirary supplies through 
N’Djamena. They all signed a 
document with Mr Habre id 
this effect. 

The other witness said he had 
actually seen the arms arrive 
m the DC4, 


General Malloun also sail 
that the stores parachuted r 
Mr Kabre last month include 
war materials. “The Elyset 
Palace _ wanted to take th 
matter in hand, and led it up : 
dead_ end ”, he said, echoing ai 
opinion expressed widely u 
France. 

He was expecting som 
message from the French Go® 
ernment on the subject, he said 
“ VV’e think Mme Clansrre ha 
been dropped by the press an< 
the French Government 1 ’, hi 
added. He did not know wlr 
she was still detained. 

“She vras taken hostage wfaili 
the previous regime was h 
power ”, he said. “ From d» 
moment it ceased to exist, ar.i 
we liberated all polirica 
prisoners, I do nor know w{U 
Mme Claustre continues to bt 
held.” 

M Abel in, the Minister fw 
Cooperation, denied on t« £ 
radio this morning that ihc 
Government intended to drop 
the case of Mme Claustre. 

HLs ministry refused to cont¬ 
inent on General MaUnuoi 
allegations that arms had been 
shipped to the rebels. It 
say, however, that if arms nco 
been delivered Mme Clau5i re 
would presumably have been 
telnsed. as this was the rebel. 
oricinal demand. 

The reply is disip^h^.^ 
Mr Habre has come to- w™* 
that it is far more valu«blte 
him to keep Mme Clai^J 
hostage, and continue to 
tire attention -of world opti* ■ 
than either to free, her or 
kill her.

Mr Rqy HattersJev, Minister

terday ruled out the possibility 
of direct elections to the Euro¬ 
pean Parliament by .1978, the

Sadat call at 
UN for 
new Geneva 
conference 

From Peter Strafford 
New York, Oct 29 
President Sadat today gave 
the United Nations a tough 
statement of the Egyptian posi¬ 
tion on the Middle East, and 
a thinly veiled warning that 
Egypt would go to' war. again, 
with Israel if further progress 
were not made towards an 
overall settlement.. ■ 

Egypt’s long-term objectives 
remained, what they had always 
been, be said; the liberation 
of all occupied Arab territories 
and the restoration, of ’the 
rights - of the . Palestinian 
people. Egyptian policy was 
positive and flexible, but one 
in which tbe final objective 
was unchangeable. 

There would beno peace, in 
the Middle 7 East without a 
political settlement of the 
Palestine . problem. If the 
Egyptian- people and the Arab 
world , in general were to .find 
that Egypt's policies were 
being misinterpreted .as capita* 
lation, they .would then nave 
to perform' their “ sacred duty ” 
of liberating their territories by 
their <gwn efforts! 

President Sadat was speaking 
at the General Assembly in the 
course of his state visit to- the 
United States. It-was Something 
of a break with his activities 
so far, which- have concentrated 
on American-Egypnan re rations, 
and he' used it“to give an 
account of 'Egyptian policy to 
tiie world, including his critics 
in. the Arab countries, - 
He defended the recent dis¬ 
engagement agreement - with 
Israel as a limited step, and one 
that bad never been intended as 
anything, more. He - also "broke 
new ground by making a formal- 
call for the opening of. prepara¬ 
tions for a new session of the 
Geneva peace conference on the: 
Middle East, . with the partici¬ 
pation of. the Palestine Libera¬ 
tion Organization (PLO>:\ . 

. This Is something that' the 
Americans, and even more the 
Israelis, have so far refused to 
accept But President Sadat said 
it was. inconceivable that the 
conference could succeed, or 
make any - progress, . without 
ELO participation, and he called 
oh the General Assembly to. 
pass a resolution on the neces¬ 
sity for it, 

. He made only a passing, but 
optimistic, reference to the pos¬ 
sibility of a new disengagement 
agreement between Israel and 
Syria. Egypt, he said, looked 
forward to such a disengage¬ 
ment. and it was one of the 
factors which made it “ high

City of conflict: how Beirut is divided between the Muslims and Phal an gists. 

Armoured cars rescue foreigners in Beirut 


From Paul Martin 
Beirut, Oct 29. : 

MoTe than 50 foreigners, 
among them five Britons, were 
rescued from the luxury Holi¬ 
day Inn hotel today which has 
been the,target of .three days 
of assauk in Beirut by leftist 
i'rregiiljars' backed ■ by Palestin¬ 
ian guerrillas. ' ' , 

The foreign residents and 
150 staff were evacuated from 
the hotel .by armoured cars of 
the Lebanese security force, 
which negotiated their way 
through the battle zone daring 
a. krll is the fighting. 

However, at least three more 
Britons—one of them a young 
single woman living alone— 
remain trapped. in flats in the 
area. The woman. Miss Anne 
Flower, lives in a rooftop flat 
in a street alan« which most of 
the serious fighting’ in the 
hotel, area has taken place. 
Leftist forces seized most of 
the street during the past 24 
hoars. 

■ Although the rescue of those 
trapped in the Holiday Inn and 
the removal to safety of 
another 50 staff from the 
Phoenicia hotel near . by 
brought some relief, k has 
done nothing to quell the 
fighting. Indeed, it is expected 


to pave the way for a new 
rush by both the attacking left¬ 
ists and the defending right- 
wing PhaJangisis to secure this 
strategic part of Beirut. 

Throughout the day. the two 
street armies, which are 
equipped with heavier weapons 
than have been fielded in tbe 
past six months of civil war, 
pounded each ocher inrermir- 
tently. But both sides applied 
more effort to a feverish rein¬ 
forcement in preparation for 
another frontal assault. Dis¬ 
guised Palestinian guerrillas 
swelled the ranks of the leftist 
forces of Ibrahim KJoeilat and 
the Phal an gists . brought . up 
heavy, mortars and rocket 
squads. 

The only glimmer of hope 
today was the decision of Mr 
Kama! Jumblatt, the Socialist 
leader, to accept the invitation 
of Mr Rashid Karami, tbe 
Prime Minister, ro join his 
nine-man security commission. 
Mr Jumblatr remains the only 
political leader with enough in¬ 
fluence to enforce a truce on 
tbe increasingly rebellious 
forces of the left. 

Earlier, Mr Jumblatt had 
been characteristically disdain¬ 
ful of Mr Karami’s security 
commission on the ground's 


that previous committees, com¬ 
missions and conclaves had 
failed to solve the problem. 
However, as the Kloleilat 
forces secured a new foothold 
In what was previously Phalan- 
gist territory and threatened ro 
.wear down the Phalangist 
defenders round the Holiday 
Inn-St. George Hotel area, he 
appears to have undergone a 
drastic change of mind.' 

Mr Jumblart has persisted in 
bis demand that before peace 
can return to Lebanon, a 
reform programme must be 
drawn up. He has used his 
armed street lobby to back up 
his demand. On the other 
hand, the right-wing Phalan- 
gists and tbe Christians in gen¬ 
eral have called for a return 
to sanity before constitutionaJ 
and social changes are dis¬ 
cussed. 

One of the most disturbing 
aspects of this latest phase of 
the conflict—popularly known 
as the Monopoly bartie because 
of the tussle for real estate—is 
the manner of the leftist 
attack. Launched last Saturday, 
its' clear aim was to burst 
through Phalangist lines and 
drive a wedge to the coast to 
link up with the leftist Muslim 
enclave of Ain MreissL This 


achieved, the division of the 
city would have been complete 
and the Phalangist access to 
the coastal road west and 
south would have been cut. 

Caught off guard by Satur¬ 
day's surprise attack, and the 
ferocity of rhe leftists’. follow¬ 
up action, the -Phalangists have 
already had several reverses. 
The leftists claim to be in a 
position to capture the Holiday 
Inn in the coming 24 hours 

"I can guarantee that I will 
be able to invite you to dinner 
at the Holiday Inn tomorrow 
night," a. member of the Kloie- 
Jar group said today. “And 
then the following night the 
Phoenicia:” However, it is 
clear that the battle is one 
which progresses in inches if 
at alL The Phalan|ists have 
rallied from their initial- blows 
and have pusbed back the 
Kloielat forces in several key

participation. 

The Egyptian # President’s 
theme was that circumstances 
today presented a unique oppor¬ 
tunity for peace in the Middle 
. East, unlike, any since the. be-.. 
ginning of the conflict. - It was 
therefore the duty of the United 
Notions not to miss the oppor¬ 
tunity, and to push matters to¬ 
wards a peaceful settlement. 

President Sadat, who is due 
to leave here tomorrow, found 
his welcome in' New York a 
great deal less warm than the 
White House and the.State De¬ 
partment would have liked, 
since both Mr Abraham Beame. 
the Mayor, and Mr Hugh'Carey, 
Governor of. New York State, 
have refused to meet him. 

Fred Emery writes from 
Washington: President Sadat’s 
first-round visit . here (he. 
returns nexr week to end bis 
state visit with gn address to a 
joint session of Congress) has 
indicated some troubling assess¬ 
ments behind the effusive 
rhetoric. 

At a news conference last 
night be again revealed the 
enormous, perhaps excessive, 
store be sets by the capabilities 
of the United Stares. In urging, 
dialogue. with the Palestinians, 
he frankly admitted that what 
ever pressures he could exert 
would not be.on the Palestinians 
but on the United States, 

The Egyptian' President re¬ 
iterated bis astonishing state¬ 
ment that. “ 99 per cent of the 
cards” were in the hands of 
the United States in the present 
push for peace. . 

President Ford, in a reply 
at last night’s Washington 
banquet, seemed anxious to have 
his guest, and all the Egyptians, 
realize thac the American presi¬ 
dency is more limited by Con¬ 
gress than they think. 


From Our Correspondent 
Madrid, Oct 29 

Spain will pull out its troops 
from Sahs~a, with or without a 
settlement, within less than 
three weeks, according to a re¬ 
port published in Madrid today. 

The evening newspaper Infor- 
mociones said that the deadline 
has been set for November 15. 
No confirmation has been given 
for this date by officials, but it 
is believed that all Spaniards, 
including civilians, will have 
left the territory before the end 
of November. 

This would presumably leave 
the Polisario (Sahara Popular 
Liberal Front) in charge, along 
with the Puns (Sahara National. 
Union Party). Both have made 
it clear in demonstrations this 
week that they do not approve 
any sell-out by Spain to 
Morocco. They favour total in¬ 
dependence. 

Tbe curfew imposed last night 
by rhe military authorities in 
Sahara remained in effect to- 
night. 

Marrakech, Oct 29.—The 
Moroccan march into Spanish 
Sahara will take place between. 
November 4 sod-November 6 T 
regardless of whether there has 
been a prior agreement with 
Spain - on the transfer of 
sovereignty, Mr Ahmed Taibi 
ben-Hima, the Moroccan Infor¬ 
mation Minisrer said ronigbf. 

It was the first time the 
Moroccan authorities had fixed 
a definite time limit 

The minister said: “ If there 
has been agreement by the time 
the march begins, we will 
simply be taking over our own 
Und. If ' there has been no 
agreement, the march will go 
ahead as planned, in order to 
bring about an agreement *-■ 


Fatah guerrillas in Golan clash 


From Eric Marsden 
Jerusalem, Oct 29 

Two Arab infiltrators were 
killed and five captured while 
trying to cross into Israel terri¬ 
tory from Syria in the central 
region of the GoJan Heights 
yesterday. 

Disclosing this today, an 
official statement said the 
arrenrion of the United Nations 
and the United States had been 
drawn to the incident, which is 
being studied in Jerusalem to 
see if it indicates a change in 
Syrian policy. 

An Army spokesman said the 
Arabs were Fatah members and 
had been “ briefed and sup¬ 
ported In their infiltration by 


elements in the Syrian general 
staff.” 

It was the first reported 
attempt by guerrillas to infil¬ 
trate from Syrian territory since 
the signing of tbe Israel-Syrian 
disengagement agreement last 
year. The movements of the 
group of seven men had been 
traced for several hours before 
tliev were encountered near 
Nafak. 

The Army statement said that 
a fight took place at close range 
in which two of the gang were 
hit and killed immediately and 
the others captured after being 
wounded slightly. They had 
Kalashnikov rifles and explo¬ 
sives and were believed to be 


trying to attack Israel settle¬ 
ments on the Golan Heights 
after training in southern Syria- 

One theory is that the 
guerrillas have switched to the 
Syrian border after repeated 
failures to cross from Lebanon. 

According to the military cor¬ 
respondent of Raoretz. the 
guerrillas have suffered 
hundreds of. casualties killed 
and wounded on the Lebanese 
border, since April, 1974. From 
then until the end of last month 
there were 727 operations by 
the Israel Army and Air Force, 
ranging from ambushes to 
artillery batteries and air strikes 
on Palestinian bases in south 
Lebanon.

British aid 
w ill go 
to poorest 
nations 

By MeJvyn Westlake 

A significant shift in the Gov- 1 
ernment’s foreign aid priorities- 
is taking place in the face of. 
the rapid deterioration in the^ 
economic prospects of 1,000 mil¬ 
lion of the world’s poorest ; 
people. . 

A White Paper, published yeS^ 
terday, the first for eight years 
dealing Comprehensively with " 
the Government’s development- 
policies, 
pronged 
poverty 

that tbe very pooresr benefit 
from the British and inter^' 
national aid effort. ’' ■ 

In future, an increasingly 
large large share of Britain’s 
E300m a year aid budget wilt; 
go to countries with a yearly ‘ 
per capita income of under $208 • 
(afcssut £97) and to the poorest * 
sectors within the higher in*-' 
come developing nations. 

This was stated yesterday by- 
Mr Reg Prentice, Minister for " 
Overseas Development, at a ■ 
press conference to introduce 
tbe White Paper, called The- 
Changing, Emphasis in British -- 
Aid Policies: More Help for'- 
the Poorest. 

The White Paper notes that - 
tbe prospects for the poorest' 
countries, broadly t^ose in 
southern .Asia and parts of 
Africa, are bleak. These are. - 
the countries which have been ■ 
most seriously affected by jn-"- 
crehses in the prices of oil, food;- 
fertilizer and capital and manif--. 
factured goods. 

In addition to channelling 
more aid to the poorest nations', - 
the White Paper says that* 
Britain’s development strategy 
will be to promote projects to" 
whicb other Western goverti- 
menes can contribute. •- - 

The third prong of the attack"- 
on poverty will be to concen¬ 
trate help on the rural areas 
within developing countries' - 
which contain many of the 
absolute poor, small peasant 
farmers and the landless, wfio^ 
have tended to benefit least- 
from development aid given'ln- 
tbe past. 

The poverty - oriented 
approach covers every aspect 1 
of the aid programme. Eor 1 
exam ole, in education the- . 
priority areas will be for tbe (i - 
provision of appropriate basic 
education and certain technical 
skills, rather than prestige. "

base at Berbers, in Somalia, or 
about the supply of Soyier arms

Mr Dzotsenidze, who is in 
Kenya with a Soviet parlia¬ 
mentary good-will delegation, 
threatened to walk out of the 
studio after turning angrily on 
African journalists who posed 
the questions. “ If these are the

President Ford to describe 
assassination attempt 


From Patrick Brogan 
Washington, Oct 29 

President Por'd is returning 
to California this afternoon, and 
all tbe police ip the Golden 
Srate will do tiieir best to stop 
anyone else gening a shot at 
him. Two women have been 
charged with attempting to 
assassinate the President in 
separate incidents in California 
last month and two men have 
been charged with conspiracy 
to blow him up. 

This is considered altogether 
too much for one state in one 
month. The President refuses to 
be intimidated, - to become “ a 
prisoner in the Oval Office ” of 
the White House, and has been 
out in public, briefly, on a num¬ 
ber of occasions since the last 
time someone shot at him. 

That was Miss Sara Jane 
Moore, who did it on September. 
22 in San Francisco. On the 
fifth. Miss Lynette “ Squeakey ” 
Fromme had tried ro fire a 
pisrol at him from a couple of 
yards away in Sacramento. It 
did not go* off. 

After tbe “Squeakey” inci¬ 
dent, Mr Ford gave up walking 
the streets of California and 
stayed indoors, except for the 


Legal proceedings involving 
both women are moving briskly 
forward. The judge in the 
Fromme case has ordered that 
Mr Ford must give a videotaped 
deposition of his memory of 
that frightening moment when 
he saw a pistol pointing at him. 
The deposition will be taken 
over_ the weekend, after the 
President returns from Cali¬ 
fornia. 

The White House had at first 
demurred, saying that the Presi¬ 
dent was far too busy and that 
there were - plenty of other 
witnesses. The judge finniy 
brushed the suggestion aside; 
if Mr Ford could spend a third 
of his rime rushing round the 
country campaigning, .he could 
find the rime to make a state¬ 
ment needed by Miss Fronune’s 
defence. 

Miss Fromme’s trial will 
begin nexr week. The judge in 
the Moore case has ordered that 
a hearing on her mental fitness 
to stand trial be held on Novem¬ 
ber 17. He entered a plea of 
not guilty ‘ on her behalf on 
'Tuesday, when she refused to 
plead. 

Mr Ford is going to a Repub¬ 
lican fund-raising dinner in Los 


brief and necessary movements Angeles this evening, and to a 


between car and hotel door. It 
was at such a moment that Miss 
Moore nearly got him-r-a former

British Consulate 
damaged by 
bombs in Ankara 

Istanbul, Oct 29.—Unidenn- 
■fied attackers threw bombs at 
the Turkisb-Iranian Friendship 
Society and the British Consu¬ 
late here during the night, 
damaging cars and windows but 
causing no injuries, police said 
. today.' 

The attack on the society 
appeared ro be in protest at 
tbe Shah of Iran’s current visit 
ro Ankara and followed a rash 
of posters protesting against the 
Iranian monarch. 

British officials were mysti¬ 
fied by the artack. 

In Ankara today thousands 
of troops and police lined the 
streets, and the Atarurk Boule¬ 
vard, the ■ capital’s main 
thoroughfare, was sealed off for 
the Shah’s procession of cars. 

Heavy security is expecred ar 
a ceremony today to mark the 
anniversary of the Turkish 
Republic, both because of the 
Shah's presence and because of 
fears of new extremist attpeks 
after last week’s assassinations 
of Turkey's ambassadors to 

Austria and France. 

In an address today. Presi¬ 
dent Fabri Korurork said: “I 
condemn the uncivilized attacks 
io Vienna and Paris in front of 
humanity and call on all civil- 
ieed countries to do tbe same. 
Such “ uncivilized aggression 
must never be forgiven. The 
Turkish nation will never 
forgive.”—-Reuter. 


African’s Czech bride told to leave Kiev 


From Edmund Stevens 
Moscow, On 29 

The Nigerian Embassy in 
Moscow has asked the Czecho¬ 
slovak Embassy to allow the 
Czech student wife of a 
Nigerian student in Kiev to 
remain with her husband and 
accompany him to Nigeria after 
he graduates next June. 

Nigerian students in Kiev 
have been on strike in protest 
against an order to the woman 
to return home. The strike has 
now spread to all African stu¬ 
dents- in Kiev, who number 
more than 900. 

The woman, Mrs Alona 
Ubam, aged 23, received a let- 
rer, dated October 7, from Mr 
P. PospishiL the Czechoslovak 
Consul-General in Kiev, order¬ 
ing her back to Prague and 
instructing her to leave Kiev 
□ot later than Seprember 30. 


A demonstration hy Nigerian 
students outside the consul's 
..office and a petition bad do 
effect. The Soviet authorities 
have pJaved no part in the 
affair and have made no move 
to compel Mrs Ubam to leave. 

Her husband. Mr Sunday 
Udo Ubam, aged 29, has been 
studying at the Kiev Institute 
of International Relations since 
1970. The couple were married 
last April. Many African and 
other students, as well as Rus¬ 
sian friends, attended the cere¬ 
mony at the Kiev wedding 
palace, but Czech students boy¬ 
cotted the event on Instructions 
from tbe consul. Mrs Ubam's 
scholarship was cancelled. 

Tbe local Czech student 
organization had always 
opposed the marriage and oub- 


licly condemned it at a meet - - 1 
tag- . 

This opposition had tbe effect 
of mobilizing African suppcrrt^ 
for the couple. The official ^ 
opposition was blamed on . 
racialism. Mrs Ubam's father,, 
a factory worker, and her' 
mother, a sales clerk, had no -. 
objections to the marriage. 

The African students have -' 
also protested to the Interna. ■

President Ford .and Mr

Negotiators believe that it 
would take, eight weeks to pre¬

basic agreement is reached on 
all issues at Geneva, which 
means in turn that the dead¬

Dragon seen to support

From Our Correspondent 
Hongkong, Oct 29 

Mr William Rodgers, the 
Minister of State for Defence, 
celebrated his forty-seventh 
birthday at Government House 
in Hongkong last night. Having 
Sen born in 1928-a Year of 
the Dragon—he is classified by 
Chinese custom as enormously

There will be strong pressure 
on this personal quality in the

point to a sullen acceptance of

At Mr Rodgers’s _ birthday

The union was demanding a

Death sentences 
on drug 

case men upheld 

Algiers, Oct 29.—Appeals by 
a Briton and a Dutchman 
against death sentences . i?r 
drug offences have been turned 
down by the Algerian Supreme 
Court, legal sources said in 
Algiers today. , , . 

Mr Harry Calleia, ^ed 47, of 
London, and Mr Arthur Pouw, 
of Holland, were sentenced to 
death last May on charges of 
drug trafficking of a 
“ to harm the moral w health o. 
the Algerian people . 

Mr Calleia was arrested m 
Algiers last December, and Mr 
Pouw in January at the Alger¬ 
ian border with Morocco with 
more than half a ton of drugs 
hidden in a trailer towed by 
his car. The law introducing the 
death penalty for certain drug 
offences was signed last Febru¬ 
ary and made retroactive to the 
previous October.—Reuter. 

10.000 to be freed 

Bangkok, Oct 29. — Forty

but our architect advised us not 
to rush in and paper tbe walls 
which had an exterior surface, 
at least until next year. We 
could see that the stm_ was 
doing its stuff,, by the hairline 
cracks developing as door and 
window frames contracted 
from the adjoining plaster, but 
here PolvnUa and its first 
cousin PolyfiUa Woodfix came 
to the rescue. 

Living in the cottage soon 
made us aware of all the small 
finishing jobs that still re- 
mained to be done. Sue bad 
bought for a few pence each 
several dozen floor tiles, and 
as well as-being used for the 
sitting room hearth, they also 
found a footing in the porch. 

We had stacked our books 
on one of the chest-high shrives 
that run the full width of the 
rooms upstairs. These shelves 
are a result of the cottage writs 
being raised in a previous 
modernization when the origi¬ 
nal thatch was replaced by 
pantiles, but their depth is 
insufficient for all but the 
slimest paperbacks and, as 
someone remarked, it did 
seem a little odd that the 
literary editor of. The Times 
had not yet provided for ms 
books. Fortunately one of the 
bargains we had picked up 
from our local newspapers 
classified advertisements had 
been a complete Scandinavian 
shelving system, and this, to 
our pleasure, fitted precisely 
in the alcove to the right of our 
sitting room chimney. 

In high summer we did noc 
need additional beat, but our

neighbour) ba,ve come into 
their own in the past six weeks. 
This form of heating may have 
lagged in popularity since the 
pnee of electricity soared, but 
for a home such as ours which 
has low ceilings we find the 
rooms heat quickly and, as the 
loh has been insulated, very 
little escapes. 

A fortnight ago one heater 
failed. As it had been dis¬ 
mantled before being trans¬ 
ported to Norfolk I wondered 
whether a vital organ had been 
damaged. I removed the 
exterior cladding, hoping that 
the remedy might be simple: 
a loose wire perhaps, or at least 
something identifiable. No luck. 
Then I noticed a fuse, which I 
extracted and tested in a 13 
amp square-pinned plug. Re¬ 
placing it with a sound one was 
simple. The heat was on. 

Although this part of Norfolk 
is an agricultural paradise, 
thriving on “ wheat, beet and 
’tacers^ as our vicar put it, 
vast quantities of market 
garden produce are sold at 
market and alongside even the 
most minor of roads—one feels 
. chat every home should have 
a deep freeze to take advantage 
of the cheap summer prices.

into the river bank and will, 

I hope, naturalize. 

Originally I had thought that 
we would sit out in the back 
garden and thus a patch of 
grass would be necessary, but 
now I am not so sure. The 
riverbank has proved so attrac¬ 
tive that nothing else seems 
necessary. With glass in hand 
and the sun out. watching the 
river and occasional boat dr

that an employer be enabled to

Advisory, Conciliation and Arbi¬

He said the need for employers 
to refer recognition issues to

If recognition matters could be 
solved 00 a conciliation basis it 
was more likely to achieve a good 
industrial relations result. 

MR HAYHTOE, an Opposition 
spokesman on employment 
(Hounslow. • Brentford and Isle- 
worth, C). said tbe Government 
were being blatantly partisan in 
seeking to .eliminate the amend¬ 
ment which gave equality of access

Tbe motion to reject the Lords 
amendment was carried by 
votes ro 222—Government 
majority. 55. 

MR JOHN FRASER, Under¬ 
secretary for Employment (Lam¬ 
beth, Norwood, Lab), moved that 
the House reject a Lords amend¬ 
ment which would provide that 
a company required to disclose 

information to trade unions on 
the company’s future plans, owl 
which co aid significantly affect 


ment. 

Many of the disclosure provi¬ 
sions in rhe Bill were not substan¬ 
tially different from the provisions 
on disclosure in the Industrial 
Relations Act, 1971. 

MR BRITTAN (Cleveland and 
Whitby, C), for the Opposition, 
said the amendment did not seek 
to protect companies that might 
not wish to disclose Information, 
quite the reverse. It was directed 
at bad companies which might be 
compelled to disclose price sensit¬ 
ive matters to trade unions, under 
the disclosure provisions, but 
would be extremely reluctant to 


MR BOOTH, Minister of State 
for Employment (Barrow-in-Fur- 
ness. Lab), moved that the House 
disagree with a Lords amendment 
to remove from employees the 
right to guaranteed payments 
where laying-nff or short-time 
working resulted from an interrup¬ 
tion to fuel and power supplies 
beyond the control of employers. 

He said that if they accepted that 
because an employer had no con¬ 
trol over rhe interruption of his 
fuel and power supplies he should 
not contribute to guaranteed pay¬ 
ments. it could also be argued that 
anything else over which die 
employer bad no control should 
equally free him from the obliga¬ 
tion. 

MR MADEL (South Bedford¬ 
shire, C) said some industries were 
in such a precarious position with 
che rise in unemployment and the 
downturn in demand that if there 
was a break in tbe supply of elec¬ 
tricity and power they would be 
put in a difficult situation. Private 
employers were helpless in such 
circumstances. 

The motion was agreed to. 

MR HAROLD WALKER, Under 
Secretary for Employment' (Don¬ 
caster. Lab), moved that the House 
should agree with the first of many 


surance contribution would be 0.05 
per cent for employers. That would 
be paid by employers for all their 
employees and would not be paid 
by employees. This was a major 
change. 

MR HAYHOE (Hounslow, Brent¬ 
ford and Isleworth, C) said this 
would be a much fairer system, 
spreading the burden across 
employers. Some women might nut 
have been employed and some 
might have lost their jobs if the 
legislation bad gone through In its 
original form. 

Tbe motion was agreed to. 

MR HAYHOE moved an amend¬ 
ment to a Lords amendment to 
make it provide that non-union 
membership should be on grounds 
of “ deeply held personal convic¬ 
tion ”, instead of “ conscience 

Tbe issue, he said, was one of 
principle. It was whether people 
who genuinely and sincerely as a 
matter of conscience or deeply 
held personal conviction felt it 
wrong to join a union should be 
able not to da so. 

MR BOOTH said it would not be 
right co accept chat the effective 
operation of closed shop agree¬ 
ments and the rights and obliga¬ 
tions of employers, employees, and 
unions Involved in tbcm should be 
subject to a statutory qualification

The People’s Peace 


Russell : ambiguity and paradox 


The Road to 1945 
By Paul Addison 

<6ape £6.50) 

■ Churchill's inclination was to 
dbsorb himself completely in one 
thing at a time . . . Talk of the 
future would divert attention from 
tbg terrible urgency of the iinme- 
dipte crisis, and stir up political 
controversy. Moreover he found 
such questions humdrum, gruel 
after the champagne of grand 
strategy . . . Reconstruction, then, 
cmdd not then come about through 
Ghurchitl. But It gradually flowed 
around and. past him, like a tide 
editing, off an island from the 
shore. 

When high tide came in 1945, 
of course, the island dis¬ 
appeared from view completely, 
to cries of ingratitude, and the 
shocked amazement of a great 
p'art of the world. The first 
lesson of Paul Addison’s stylish 
and intelligent hook is that no¬ 
body should have been shocked 
or even surprised by the huge 
Conservative defeat two months 
after VE-Day and just before 
Potsdam. Churchill himself was 
ah indifferent-and wilful Con¬ 
servative: it was sail the parry 
of Baldwin and Chamberlain, 
and, if they had gone, most ot 
their MPs were still in the 
House. The ground had hecn 
cat away from Churchill's feet 
years earlier, if indeed he had 
ever trodden firm ground save 
that afforded by his particular 
genius for fighting Hitler’s 
war on Hitler’s terms. 

'That he unknowingly led a 
Trojan horse through the gates 
of power when he took Labour 
leaders into his 1940 Govern¬ 
ment is one of several legends 
exploded in The Road to 2945. 
The armed warriors of social 
reconstruction were planning 
their campaign quite openly, 
arid' if Churchill would never 
have permitted precious parlia- 


m earary time to fight them 
through, neither had he himself 
the time to Co of use them very 
effectively. Another myth, pro¬ 
pounded by Churchill himself 
after bis defeat, is that Labour 
Party agents broke the political 
“ truce ” of the war years more 
flagrantly than their Conserva¬ 
tive opponents: Dr A ddisoa 
shows that most of . them were 
irv the Services and that Labour 
Party organization was very 
rough and ready even in 1945. 

I suppose the truth has always 
been known but I have never 
seen it put so clearly as in this 
book: after the fall of Cham¬ 
berlain the whole country 
shifted irreversibly to the Left, 
and Labour, particularly after 
the experience of its leaders in 
Churchill's Coalition, was the 
best political machine of the 
day to express that shift on the 
Stamte Book. 

The political impact of Dun¬ 
kirk was enormous, if hard to 
assess at the rime (Dr Addison 
makes shrewd use of Mass-Ob¬ 
servation and Home Intelli¬ 
gence reports which are Far 
more revealing than has often 
been supposed—mosr politi¬ 
cians held opinion polls in con- 
rempt and Churchill did not 
learn of the frequent predic¬ 
tions of his electoral defeat un¬ 
til Lord Moran rold him in 
1946). Memories of 1919 were 
fresh and The People’s War, if 
it was to progress beyond Lloyd 
George's elusive land fit for 
heroes, must dearly be fought 
to establish the terms of The 
People’s Peace. “I agree with 
Carr”, wrote Barringron-Ward 
of his colleague’s leader in The 
Times as early as July, 1940, 
“—planned consumption, aboli- 
tiou of unemployment and 
poverty, drastic educational re¬ 
form. family allowances, econo¬ 
mic organisation of the Conti¬ 
nent. etc Nothing from Daw¬ 
son's successor, you notice, 
about the state of the Party. 


The programme beyond Victory 
was the welfare state. 

Dr Addison describes 
Churchill’s Coalition Govern¬ 
ment of 1940-45 as the greatest 
reforming government since the 
Liberal administrations of 1905- 
13—not in terms of new laws 
(save on family allowances and 
Butler's great Education Act) 
but in terms of preparation. If 
the first main thesis of The 
Road to 194S is that Conserva¬ 
tive defeat had been a fore¬ 
gone conclusion since the year 
of Tobruk and El Alamein 
(respectively, the nadir and 
turning-point of rite military 
battle), the second is that the 
Attlee administrations of 7945- 
Sl, far from being the innova¬ 
tory phenomena believed at the 
time, had most of their great 
reforms laid out for them 
beforehand by a wide range of 
opinion and. above all. by the 
brillianr devisers from outside 
rhe party system-—William 
Beveridge and John Mavnard 
Keynes. Here again Dr Addjson 
looks at familiar figures in 
quite a new way. 

" Consensus ” can be a 
smothering sort of conspiracy 
and there is a feeling again 
now in current books as un-alike 
as Maurice Cowling’s Impact of 
Hiller. The Cecil King Diary 
and Terry Arthur’s 95 per cent 
is Crap, that Westminster and 
Whitehall are mutually com¬ 
petitive industries which close 
ranks the minute they are 
threatened from outside. Dr 
Addison slings his narrative 
between the twin poles of 
“ Baldwin’s consensus ” 0922- 
1940, more or less) and Attlee’s 
(1945-51). and the sharpest of 
several definitions he gives the 
phrase “ consensus politics ” is 
the agreement by which the 
major parries agree to cooperate 
in order to prevent die political 
initiative passing out of parlia¬ 
mentary hands. 

The solitary brilliance of 
Keynes, the popularity of 


Beveridge (the Report sold 
G35.000 copies) were as much a 
potential threat to classic deci«. 
sion-taking as the meetings of 
Mosley in the previous decade 
or the bombs of the IRA in 
ours. (Both Cowling and Addi¬ 
son. working from quite differ¬ 
ent directions, conclude chat rhe 
man who enforced most of the 
firm decisions in British politics 
between 1933 and 1940 was, of 
course, Adolf Hitler.) When 
faced with such a -challenge 
from outside. Governments may 
destroy, ignore or subsume 
them. Keynes and Beveridge, 
without conventional political 
backing, were subsumed, if 
barely by Churchill, then whole¬ 
heartedly by Attlee, Bevin, 
Morrison, and such post-war 
Tory .reformers as Eutler. 
Macmillan, Woolton and Hogg. 
Tbe result. Dr Addison con¬ 
cludes, was ever greater con¬ 
vergence leading to the ultim¬ 
ate consensus of Butskeliism, 
whereby the new Conservative 
Chancellor of the Exchequer in 
1951 (ironically, Churchill’s) 
was virtually indistinguishable 
from his Labour predecessor. 
Butskeliism become the norm. 

Whether you believe, as 
Addison does, that the system 
which informed tbe Govern¬ 
ment of Great Britain for the 
next 25 years is now irretriev¬ 
ably defunct through over¬ 
strain and exhaustion, or 
whether you hope it can be 
revived in some form accept¬ 
able both to those who regard 
Clement Attlee as tbe Arch¬ 
friend of Compromise and those 
for whom Richard Austin 
Butler has always flown with 
an overdeveloped left wring, 
The Road to 1945 offers a mar¬ 
vellously stimulating, densely 
documented and readable 
account of how. under rhe pres¬ 
sures of possible extinction, the 
system of the middle way first 
came about.

“Trollope kills me, kills me

"mastery” as a translation, to 
the more conventional “excel¬

thorough tribute to a still occa¬ 
sionally undervalued novelist it 
is on Trollope’s command of 
his craft that he concentrates, 
and about which he is consis¬ 
tently interesting and reveai- 
ing. 

The book is primarily a bio¬

Encyclopaedia (he reached the 
letter D, then died); his 
mother and her unexpected 
literary success; and TroHope 
himself, an employee of the 
Post Office, riding 40 miles a 
day from Cornwall to Mon¬ 
mouthshire to organize the 
postal deliveries, inventing tbe 
letter-box, and finally at 42 
having his first literary success 
with Barchester Towers. Was 
there ever a more industrious, 
feverishly active author ?—up 
at 5 to write 2^00 -words every 
morning before breakfast, (ben 
a day’s work at the office, then 
ou to the Garrick for whist, 
then home to entertain his 
friends ("You seem to have a 
very good appetite, Mr Trol¬ 
lope “ Not at all, madam, 
but, thank God, I am very 
greedy” ) And hunting on two 
days in the week. 

All this is fascinating, and 
sympathetically told.; But then, 
in two fine chapters, there is 
critical comment on the 
novels—an analysis of Trol¬ 
lope’s imrveblous - dialogue, a 
sure eye for the autobiographi¬ 
cal elements of the books, and 
a noble defence of his methods 
of work. Lord Snow points out,

abused and scorned at Harrow, 
Trollope was haunted until -his 
dying day by the miseries and 
sufferings of his youth, and 
suggests that this left him 
lacking in ego, giving him the 
natural ability to see his 
characters vividly as them¬ 
selves rather than as projec¬ 
tions of his own imagination, 
making him “ the most scrupu¬ 
lously realistic of all nove¬ 
lists ”, 

This is one of those elegant 
books designed and produced 
by George Rainbird Ltd, who 
have helped to make the fully 
illustrated “ coffee-table book n 
an acceptable form for the 
serious biographer or social 
historian. The illustrations are 
particularly well selected: 
some of them of course show 
us Trollope, his friends and 
relatives, rise places he knew; 
others, however—contemporary 
genre paintings—illuminate 
rather than illustrate the 
novels themselves. A painting 
by Yeames is, for instance, 
w possibly Madame Goessler 
consulting Phineas Finn’s law¬ 
yers” and for once such an 
assertion does not strain credu¬ 
lity. (“Oh, no it’s not”, one is 
so often tempted to say; but 
here—well, yes, possibly.) The 


book is a pleasure to handle, 
engrossing to read, and a 
delight to look at—and Lord 
Snow has still managed to con¬ 
vince us that it is a book that 
was written first, and " made ” 
afterwards. 

Rainbird also produced Mar¬ 
garet Lane's Samuel Johnson 
and his World. The tide sug¬ 
gests that it was conceived as a 
book which should be almost 
equally a portrait of the eight¬ 
eenth century and "the 
Doctor—perhaps because of 
the good recent studies of 
Johnson, inaViding the justly- 
praised one by John Wain. The 
result in this case is a rather 
too densely written book -which 
demonstrates some of tbe 
perils of the “ coif ee-table ” 
format: the print a little'too 
so tali and crowded for the 
illustrations to look easy, and 
the style perhaps a little too 
scholarly. * 

C. P. Snow’s text at first 
seemed a little too loose; ‘diV 
cursive, conversational, but: in 
the end is convincingly right 
for his putative audience. His 
book is an illustrated bio¬ 
graphy, Miss Lane’s a biography

My Quest for Liberty and Love 

By Dora Russell ' 

lEiekfPemberton, E5.95) 

Half saint, half' satyr,- wholly 
j monsire sacre, the face looks 
out upon -us from-the photo¬ 
graphs, properly suggesting am¬ 
biguity and paradox. The aris¬ 
tocrat who espoused socialism. 

yet despised the masses; the 
pacifist wbo advocated a. pre¬ 
emptive nuclear war; the 
feminist who took refuge in'the 
parrist obfuscations of .the 
divorce courts; the sensualist 
driven by fears of impotence; 
the moralist who .told public 
lies. From these thousand or 
so pages, Bertrand Russell 
emerges, warts arid all, but 
emerges finally triumphant. The 
books are well taken in con¬ 
junction . 

Mr Clark’s well researched, 
often ill written, biography tries 
- always to be fair, but Dora 
Russell's memoirs are a pas¬ 
sionate and proper corrective. 

Mr Clark has had access to 
the journals and papers of the 
Bertrand Russell Archive at 
McMaster University, Ontario. 
Given the solecisms of his prose 
—which grow fewer as the book 
progresses—he has been wise 
to quote them in such abun¬ 
dance, to adopt a modest pos¬ 
ture ; though this, ultimately, 
detracts from bis achievement. 
One would have liked him, diffi¬ 
cult though it is, to take some 
stand on Russell’s position as 
mathematician and philosopher, 
to have given us a proper 
exegesis of the best known 
books, not least the History of 
Western Philosophy. Though 
Russell’s impact on his own 
times transcended his achieve¬ 
ments as an intellectual, it was 
on these, surely, that it was 
based. 

His own autobiography 
showed him, misleadingly, as a 
cold fish ; one came away above 
all with tbe image of his going 
in 1902 for an afternoon cycle 
ride in the fen country, de¬ 
ciding he no longer loved his 
first wife,. Alys, and telling her. 
It was. as Mr Clark shows us. 
a great deal more complicated 
than this; though Russell's first 
three wives unquestionably bad 
a hard time of it. Alys never 
ceased to love him, and seems

Here at the New 
Yorker 

By Brendan Gill 

[Michael Joseph. £6) 

The New Yorker combines the 
studious hi jinks of a prep 
school with the pointless mys¬ 
tery of a Chinese secret society, 
and yet in tbe fifty years since 
it was started by Harold Ross. 
its affectionately foul-mouthed 
editor, it has published some of 
the best writers in America. 
And not only in America, since 
it has kepi many British short- 
story writers prosperous as well. 

No one is quite sure how this 
has come about, least of all 
Brendan Gill, who confesses 
that to him the priuting of the 
magazine is miraculous and its 
payments incomprehensible. 
Nor is he, for ail bis inside in- 
formation, ahle to say much 
about some of its star contribu¬ 
tors. S. J. Pereiman gets a 
passing mention; no more. 
Thurber is written off as mali- 
cinus (Mr Gill substantiates 
this, but not without sounding 
rather petty himselfi. Updike 
appears in three lists of writers, 
one staring that he has written 
104 pieces for the magazine: 


that is all. The reclusive J. D. 
Salinger becomes, if anvthing, 
more featureless and baffling in 
Mr Gill’s book. Peter De Vries, 
who has been writing brilliantly 
for the magazine for nearly 
thirty years appears nowhere in 
these pages. 

Eu^ it is not Mr Gill’s inten¬ 
tion to suppress. This is a 
birthday book and throughout 
its author is in a festive mood. 
He writes. " Because T was born 
with more than ordinant energy 
and with every passing year 
appear to have less and less 
need of sleep, I spend much of 
my life racing from one plea¬ 
sant social occasion to the next 
... 1 am acquainted to far mure 
people out in the world than 
anyone else on The iVei:- 
Yorker is." and (though this 
hardly tallies with his- omis- 
sionsi “1 am also in a position 
to knmv more people on the 
magazine itself than anyone 
except Shawn I the editor J is 
likely to know”. Mr Gill docs 
more than brag about his superh 
mental health; he proves it by 
describing his survival in the 
swift currents of popular jour¬ 
nalism. He is downright irre¬ 
pressible in his anecdotal his¬ 
tory of the staffers and contri¬ 
butors who have come and

Jerome 

His Life, Writings and 
Controversies 

By J.N.D. Kelly 

(Duckworth, £10) 
j The Principal of St Edmund 
Hall has answered in his 
lerome rhe need for a full-scale 
English biography of the great- 
! esr scholar among the Latin 
Fathers- He has done more, 
however, than provide an 
authoritative work of especial 
value to chose whose interests 
lie iu that particular Field. He 
has given the general reader 
an enchanting study of a fas¬ 
cinating personality*whose life, 
though reflecting the preoccu¬ 
pations of the declining classi¬ 
cal world of the fourth and 
fifth centuries AD. provides the 
inner conflict of contraries 
which in any age makes a story 
of unusual human interest. 

Jerome emerges from this 


comprehensive study more re¬ 
markable for intellectual power 
and scholastic achievement than 
for saintliness. He was no doubt 
canonised more for his lasting 
services to the Church in the 
provision of the Vulgate than 
for any pre-eminem holiness of 
character. In fact, it is clear 
that outside the province r«f 
scriptural research Jerome 
tended in generate more heat 
than light. Throughout his pro¬ 
gress from Strido in Dalmatia, 
via Rome as secretary to Pone 
Damasus. and. after much 
journeying. to Bethlehem, 
where he did most oF his liter¬ 
ary work and ended his days, 
be proved himself a bitter con¬ 
troversialist, and punctuated 
the steady flow of his Biblical 
toils with polemical treatises, 
particularly against Pelagianism 
and the teachings of Origen. 
For all that, he attracted and 
made disciples of Roman ladies 
seeking to lead a devout Jifc, 
two of whom, Paula and her 


gone, beginning chapters with 
the exclamatory, ** Poor 
Maloney! ’’ and “Oh, but John 
O’Hara was a difficult man!” 
He is particularly good on the 
cartoonists and cover artists, 
Charles Addams. Steinberg, 
Darrow and others: on Wallace 
Stevens and Edmund Wilson 
(though 1 should say that hav¬ 
ing reviewed Wilson's The 
Tirentics and Bernstein's 
Thurher. and now this. 1 have 
been in and out of the Algon¬ 
quin bar sn many times I’m 
beginning to feel a bir unsteady 
on my pins). 

This is as much his own story 
as The Map Yorker's. Mr Gill 
lias had wljjt seems a charmed 
life—every thing’s “ Absolutely 
marvellous! ” as he says to j 
very gloomy novelist at a parry. 
His sunny mood is infectious, 
lighting the paragraphs he 
desires to have “ a weight and 
shape no greater than that of a 
cloud of blue butterflies One 
can't help wishing him well, and 
he has certainly come a long 
way since Mr Whitaker scrib¬ 
bled next to one of his Gibbon- 
esque sentences. “ If you tapped

ously ambivalent personality. 
.... The deeper springs of his 
psychology elude us. and for 
all his readiness to talk about 
himself, there is an unsolved

This is Dr Kelly’s verdict at the 
conclusion of a biography which 
nmsi have been no less absorb¬

It is left tn the reader to decide 
whether, us with Paul, in the

The Pursuit of 

Happiness 

By Mervyn Jones . 

(Quartet, £3.95) 

California Time is 'the 'screen¬ 
play for a story about Holly¬ 
wood the olden-golden, down¬ 
town Byzantium in the West. In 
those run-down old studios tlje 
stars and executives play, theu- 
jaws_ dripping with blood from 
the jungle-jugulars of competi¬ 
tors._ The form of the novel is 
filmic. There are uo chapters, 
but changes of type to indicate 
cuts to new shots, flashbacks, 
close-ups, and flashes forward. 
It is the scenario for a director, 
with shooting directions and 
critical commentary asking such 
parenthetical textual questions 
as “ Are we intended to see a 
resemblance to a corpse? " 

Victor England (are we in¬ 
tended to see a symbol in rhe 
names ?), the great film direc¬ 
tor. comes back to Hollywood 
m complete the arrangements 
for his next triumphant produc¬ 
tion. He has a cast-iron con¬ 
tract, and everything seems to 
be coming up roses. But then 
hints of menace no bigger than 
a man's hand-grenade insinuate 
themselves into the soundtrack 
and the periphery' of panning 
shots. 

Why is Victor kept cooling 
his heels in a grand hotel, 
uwned by one Vcrdugo (a name 
thdr, MB, means executioner in 
Spanish)? What are these 
repealed brief references to his 
film of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, 
which sounds as if it excelled' 
the great 3932 version by 


never to have loved anyone 
else. Dora, a Wellsian heroine, 
brave, clever, passionate and 
confused, was unwise enough 
to assume he was as serious 
about free love aod freedom in 
marriage as she. Alas, she was 
to discover that what was sauce 
for the gander was by no means 
sauce for the goose. She for¬ 
gave him for bedding the hired 
help; he could not pardon her 
having two children by an 
American journalist. The 
marriage (which she had never 
wanted) over, she found he did 
not easily forgive. 

She writes that Russell was 
too intellectual to absorb the 
discoveries of Freud, which she 
herself comically traduces. Fear 
may have had more to do with 
it; psychologically, Russell 
skated on thin ice. His child¬ 
hood was almost a text in de¬ 
privation ; before he was four 
years old. his mother had died 
from diphtheria, his father of 
grief. He was broughc up in 
Stygian Isolation by his grand¬ 
mother, the widow of Lord -John 
Russell. 

A particular poignancy is 
given to the biography by tbe 
fact that Colene O’Niel, other¬ 
wise Lady Con stance MaJJeson, 
one of his two supreme mis¬ 
tresses, should die three 

Rouben Mamoulian? Is Victor 
victor or victim? What gives? 

The language is brilliant and 
elusive, an unruly panorama 
that flickers by quip-as- 
lighming with - flesh-in-th e-pan 
establishing shots. Frederic 
Raphael is a glutton and an 
artist for paranomasia and all 
rhe other linguistic fireworks. 
Before tbe first reel is run 
Victor is up to his ears in 
chic-to-cfaic butchered blondes, 
negated contracts, and cryptic 
skulduggery. ' No chauffeur 
makes a guest appearance 
unless- he is wearing a piqued 
cap; no veterinarian unless he 
can prove he is a veteran 
Aryans The effect is mysterious, 
moving, and dazzling, like_ an 
art film by Cocteau or Buffo el 
with script by Joyce. You can¬ 
not take your eyes off the 
screen. But you need to see the 
show through several. times to 
appreciate all the allusive 
illusions and sutile subtleties. 

Sarah Gainham s new book is 
a love .story sec in modern 
Austria with its roots going 
back to that dark age of the 
human spirit. Central Europe 
towards the end of the last 
war. 

A poor young man of'mysteri¬ 
ous origins falls fathomlessly 
in love with a beautiful young 
heiress. Her domineering father 
with the Midas touch focuses 
his narrow; capacity for love 
upon tbe girl. Tbe catastrophe 
(in its original sense) of the 
story travels backwards in time 
to what was called Eastern 
Prussia in 1944. when order was 
disintegrating into chaos. The 
account of the long trek of two 
women away from the advanc¬ 
ing armies, the iron cold, the 
hunger, the rapes, the murder, 
and the human wolves who dis¬ 
graced the names of wolves as 
well of men. is at times unbear¬ 
ably painful to read. Miss 
Gainham writes a prose that is 
sometimes as overwhelmingly 
rich as Viennese hot chocolate 
with cream. She knows Eastern 
Europe as a familiar friend, 
and is perceptive about the 
eternal struggle between order 
and chaos in human affairs. 
Thank heavens, after the pro¬ 
tracted agony, she manages a 


weeks ago. The other, as 
Mr Clark makes clear to 
us with much remarkable 
documentation, was Lady 
Ottoline MorelL, to whom 
RusseU sometimes wrote three 
times a day (bow marvellously 
those Edwardians wrote!) and 
who retained his love for 27 
years. Her own, by contrast with 
the impassioned Colette’s, was 
limited. He fascinated her, but 
he did nor much attract her 
physically. There are moments, 
reading the letters of Colette, 
so full of love and generosity, 
wheo one laments the fact they 
never married; yec knowing 
how most of Russell's marriages 
ended, perhaps it is as well they 
did not. that her red roses 
should arrive on his birthday 
to tbe very end. 

Wittgenstein stalks through 
the pages, as uncoroprisingly 
reproachful as D. H. Lawrence. 
The burthen of their reproof, 
though one speaks of philo¬ 
sophy and the other of “ life ’ 
is that Russell would never go 
quite far enough, was never 
prepared to burn his boats, 
commit himself beyond redemp¬ 
tion. If they were right, per¬ 
haps it had something to do 
with the eighteenth century 
Whig aristocrat in him, the 
horror of excess. 

recognition scene and a quiet 
happy ending as well. 

The concept of happiness as 
something that needs to be pur¬ 
sued energetically is very 
American and clearly mistaken. 
Mervyn Jones’s new novel, 
which could be subtitled “Mar¬ 
riage or a Career for the 
Liberated Woman". is,, a 
woman’s-eye . view ot matri¬ 
mony ; that is to say, a worm's- 
eye view. It is written in the 
first person, as if by a talented 
career girl imprisoned in mar¬ 
riage by an appallingly trendy 
old pseud of a husband. Put 
like that, the plot sounds dis¬ 
tinctly slushy, old-fashioned 
women’s mag; and it is. It has 
also been negligently proof¬ 
read. But Mervyn Jones has 
the sharp perceptions of a true 
novelist about how real people 
think and talk today. 


Yet how often and how pea* 
tratingly he was right; m 
least wnen he went to Satin 
Russia in 1921, saw and a n 
through Lenin, and predicted 
exactly the cruel, repressive 
course of Communism. Dor*, 
travelling about on her own, 
losing the wood for the trees, 
wear home with a curiously 
muddled, ambivalent stance 
towards it which seems never 
to have left her. and which she 
still blames for some of the dis¬ 
sension between them. 

Russell’s magnificent long, 
evity is not the least impressive 
aspect of bis life, even if Aft 
last protesting yeafs were 
shadowed by the intransigence 
of Ralph Schoenman. . bis 
egregious American secretary. 
His Private Memorandum on 
Schoenman, which Mr Clark 
publishes entire, shows he was 
less deceived than some 
imagined. 

The final impression left bv 
Mr Clark’s exhaustive, well 
organized biography, Mrs Rus¬ 
sell's poignant memoir, is ooe 
of nobility. Perhaps the final 
paradox was that Russell's very 
aristocracy should caparison 
him as the champion of .the: 
weak.

Leadership in Battle 

1914-1918 

By Sir John Smyth VC 

(David and Charles. £S.2S) 

The army should know a thing 
or two about leadership. 
Whether or not it fully under¬ 
stands chat mystic quality upon 
which hangs the fabric of 
military life in wer and peace, 
is more open to question. 

Brigadier Sir John Smyth, a 
distinguished military career of 
of his own behind him, does 
not attempt any penetrating 
analysis of his elusive subject, 
which is arguably best left to 
a psychologist. This book, a 
follow-up to his successful 
Leadership in IVor 1939*45, is 
more u running commentary, 
conducted at the pace of a 
sprint, upon the performance 
of those who For better or 
worse, tore Europe apart in 
1914-18. 

Leadership for the generals 
of the First World War was. 


he contends, more difficult 
l ban for those ot the Second, 
if only because it was harder 
for them to keep in touch with 
their troops. This also meant 
that there was more scope for 
leadership among the lower 
ranks,'as evidenced by the 633 
Victoria Crosses awarded in 
1914-18 against 182 between 
1939 and 1945. 

Sir John is no apologist for 
the generals, not for all of them 
auywuy.'Hc criticizes “rigidity 
of planning and too little brain n 
—though It is also true that as 
with so many professional 
soldiers his _ pen is rarely as 
sharp as his sword- Plumer, 
Birdwood, Horne, Byng and 
Rawlinson are among the gen¬ 
erals who emerge with credit 
as “ splendid and inspiring 
leaders" with perhaps Sir 
Henry Rawlinson winning more 
credits than his fellows. 

There are some engaging 
snapshots in prose of life at 
the top in northern France, 
pilled from a variety of sources 
, including the author’s own 
recollections. There is Asquith 
wining and dining so 1 well on a 
visit to the front- that he could 


not get out of his car to inspect 
the long-suffering soldiers who 
had stood on parade several 
bours during the port and 
brandy ... of King George V 
who having sworn total abstin¬ 
ence for the duration nearly 
cracked the entente cordiaie by 
offering Joffre a choice of 
ginger beer or lemonade during 
a lunch at GHQ ... or Haig’s 
sensitivity to visiting the 
wounded because it made him 
physically sick. 

The upper lip is always 
admirably stiff. "One of their 
shells fell on our parapet and 
Fowle, my company commander 
and I were nearly buried ” 
writes Lieutenant-General Sir 
Reginald Savory, then an officer 
with the 14th Sikhs 8t Gallipoli. 
“ We both tried to look non- 
chalant and to pretend that we 
had not been very shaken. Our 
breakfast was ruined. ...” 

But then any book of 382 
pages must be itself something 
of an understatement on a sub¬ 
ject which is worth a library of 
its own.

Wbo Killed Julia 

Wallace?

Leonard Buckley 

William Herbert Wallace was 
certainly a cold fish. This liide 
insurance man in Liverpool was 
not a bit like those advertise¬ 
ments you have seen of the 
men from the Pru. But did that

er s 

The murder is a classic 
mystery.- Wallace was tried for 
it and convicted but the verdict 
was upset on appeal. For the 
whole affair bristles with 
doubts. 

Mercifully It was all over 
long ago. Wallace died soon 
after fiis wiEe. So we could 
approach the mystery last night 
as an intellectual exercise, pit¬ 
ting our wits against the felon 
and searching for clues. This 
was nnt one of those embarrass¬ 
ing occasions when some tele¬ 
vision personality decides to 
put English justice to rights. 
Fenton BresJer, who introduced 
the case; gave us the facts 
crisply and without bias. He 
has the knack of remaining dis¬ 
passionate while getting us 
involved. 

He was backed by a brilliant 
reconstruction of the people, i 
the place and the time. David , 
C. Rea's production avoided I 
the hackneyed faces of televi¬ 
sion acting to bring us a cast • 
that made for credibility : and 
the script kept strictly to the 
record. 

Frank Middlemans quietly in¬ 
sistent for the prosecution. 
John Boxer pursing his lips for 
the defence, and Norman 
Shelley courteously impartial 
as the judge made the court¬ 
room scenes particularly effec¬ 
tive. The burden Throughout, 
though, lay on Eric Longworth 
as Wallace. Was he simply a 
guileless dozen or just the 
man for the Chamber of Hor¬ 
rors? With bis metal-rimmed 
glasses, , his neat appearance 
and his gulping adam’s apple 
he had to keep us guessing. 
And be did precisely that. Just 
at the .end, when objectivity 
had been duly observed, Mr 
Bresler added .his own ingeni¬ 
ous, if still question-begging 
reasons for believing that the 
reatlife Wallace bad done the 
murder.'. But the Wallace of 
this model programme had ns 
wondering all the way.

Die Meistersinger von 

Niimberg 

Vienna Staatsoper 

John Higgins 

The production team of Oitn 
Scheult and Jurgen Rose 
reserve much of their best work 
for Vienna; rheir ' Meister - 
singer . which has just opened 
at the Staatsoper, is no excep¬ 
tion. It is a staging of magnifi¬ 
cence, but also o.ne of consider¬ 
able reverence in its: refusal 
to pull any stick'- dramatic 
tricks. Detail is used upon 
detail , to create a bourgeois 
Nuremberg in the middle' of 
the sixteenth century in dress, 
in gesture and most of all in' 
the raw materials of living and 
working. '• 

Rose's sets are dominated by 
wood. It is there.iri the balcony 
which runs ronnd . the stone 
interim* of St Catherine's, 
churchy the vantage point of-the- 
apprentices who look down on 
the judgment of their elders, 
approving ihe new in tbe shape 
of Waltber von Srolzing but 
also anxious to grow ‘ up- and" 
join tbe Nuremberg -Rotary 
Club. Ir dominates the middle 
act, where the timbered houses 
Jean forward - towards one 
another like gossiping neigh¬ 
bours. Sachs’s hpuse is virtually 
a carpenter’s workshop with.its 
tiers of sbelves piled high with 
boots, dogs and shoes. 

The triumph is reserved for 
tbp. .‘final scene,, with, the sjage 
turned* into a giant marquee 


with Freshly erected stands on 
either side, a beer barrel (yet 
more wood) lurking in the back¬ 
ground for the time when the 
songs have been sung and lira 
has been claimed, while the 
brilliant green of the Festwie.se 
itself rolls away inm infinity. 
Schenk and R6<e conquer iiv 
holding Lhe mirror up in nature 
—the sun coming and going 
through the windows of the 
Katbarinenkirche. night closing 
round the ancient lime tree by 
Pogner's house—and catching at 
the same time the reflections of 
the humans wir-hin it. 

. Tbe production is a sharp 
retort to those wbo have been 
calling for simpler and more 
economical staging of opera. 
Perhaps this accounted for boo¬ 
ing which. Fra told, mingled 
with the cheers on the opening 
.night. But by the second per¬ 
formance the audience had 
realized, , quite literally, when it 
was well off and only a very 
few voices were raised in dis¬ 
agreement with tbe conductor, 
Christoph von Dohnanyi. Meis- 
■ tersinger above all operas is the 
one which needs careful detail 
rather than risky conjuring 
tricks and it sits excellently in' 
a golden frame, if there is a 
worthy cast at band. 

Vienna have turned to 
trusted singers. Karl Ridder- 
busch has been building bis 
Sachs over the .past few years 
and has collected a few critics 
on the way. But now he seems 
very dose to getting the right 
creation within his grasp. His 
is. a Sachs of weight, both in 
body, where his glasses perch 
precariously. o/i .a.massive fa.ee, 
■and in voice. “The tones are so 


rounded and sonorous ihar he 
has io command alien lion : part 
of the bafflement at the end 
of Act 1 cumcs from the fact 
thru hi-, advice bus for nnre 
heen ignored. The FUedcr- 
monolog was a masterly piece 
of singing, lusciously accom¬ 
panied hy Dohnanyi’ who on 
other occa- inn.s was'inclined io 
push his singers run hard. The 
strength of lhe figure created 
throughout the rest of ihar act 
and the first scene nf Act Ml 
was such that Sachs got a spon¬ 
taneous round nf applause from 
the Vienna audience when he 
appeared at. the .song contest. 
“Silenaum”, shouted the 
Lchrhuhcn on stage and the re¬ 
buke was noted. Ridderbusch’s 
sole lack at the moment is a 
touch more humour, the occa¬ 
sional gesture of self-denigra¬ 
tion which Schftffier under¬ 
stood so well. 

Waltber, as with most of tbe 
roles in this Meister singer is 
double cast James King took it 
at the first performance but by 
the second it liad already 
passed to Jess Thomas. Mr 
Thomas is a generous artist, 
perhaps a bit too generous; he 
had given so freely of his voice 
during the first five hours of 

die evening, with little help 
from Dohnanyi in the pit, that 
be was tired by the time the 
Prize Song came. But he is a 
full-blooded and handsome 
Wakher now that he is 
unhampered by the ludicrous 
costume he last wore in the 
part at Covent Garden. Gundula 
Janowitz’s Eva, a stately 
brunette in place of the con¬ 
ventional blonde, is elegantly 
and supremely .secure, very

The Sea GuU 
Lyric 

Charles Lewsen 

With the creation of the Lyric 
Theatre. Company, H. M. Ten- 
nent Ltd, in partnership with 
Eddie Kulukondu,' returns ro 
its role' as a serious and per¬ 
haps innovative management; 
for in providing' a -stage for 
actors of stature who, perma¬ 
nently or temporarily, have-no 
place in the RSC or the 
National, it offers the'possi¬ 
bility of a major' theatrical 
company, and -consequent en¬ 
richment of the repertoire. 

To be sure, neither of the 
first two offerings, by Chekhov 
and .Ben Travers, seems a great 
commercial risk, but they pro¬ 
vide a point of -departure; and 
in his production of The Sea 
Gull, Lindsay Anderson has, 
with-', determination and a 
measure of success, risen to 
one perplexing .challenge of 
Chekhov: 

In their programme note. Mr 

Anderson .and his feflow 
adaptor. Galina, von Meek, 
quote Chekhov’s, statement on 
tbe play: “I wanted to tell 
people honestly, * Look at your¬ 
selves: Just- see how absurdly 
you live; and how silly you 
are*.” 1 Determined to < take 
seriously Chekhov’s description 
of Ms play as a comedy. Mr 


. Anderson has directed a pro¬ 
duction that is continually 
graced by wit, and moves at 
times'into the realm of farce. 

• -If the farcical -approach 
becomes gross in Joan 
Plowright's manhandling of 
Peter McEnery, as Arkadina 
tells Trigorin that be is' the 
only ' hope of Russia, like 
Sweeny Todd about to deliver 
the coup de disgrace, it is not 
-entirely the fault of Miss 
Plowright. The fault, I think, 
. lies in-Mr Anderson taking too 
literally .words uttered by 
Chekhov in exasperation at 
Stanislavsky's sentimental 

Kror ajjs m. ■ The 'production 
works magnificently where it 
reflects another statement of 
Chekhov, that the theatre ought 
simply to show people behaving 
as in real life; though that 
ingenuous statement should be 
—and, happily, has been— 
taken with a pinch of sodium 
glutamate. 

. The play of compassionate wit 
is seen throughout the first act, 
ui the 1 series of duologues in 
which one'- person pours J out 
psun. disturbance or despair^ to 
another, who is too preoccupied 
Feklfy to listen. The non-coio- 
m uni cation is most vividly dis¬ 
played in Mr McEnery’s 
Trigorin, furrowing his brow 
with a limp scudiousness which 
denotes that within him is a 
vacuum. 


A more acerbic wit is re¬ 
flected in Dorn’s forcing Kon¬ 
stantin to tell the household of 
Nina's unhappy affair with 
Trigorin. Kevin Stoney plays 
Dorn with an unusual measure 
of actual callousness to balance 
the man’s woolly literary judg¬ 
ment; and when Konstantin 
hesirares, saying “It’s a long 
story”, Mr Stoney conveys both 
tbe personal needling and the 
literary compliment of the 
admirably translated reply to 
the yoang author: “You can 
make it short 

Superb irony Is achieved by 
Helen Mirren, _ who entirely 
eschews pathos in Nina's final 
scene, quoting Konstantin’s 
symbolist play with a smile 
that displays tbe boy's work 
as poor art, but a perfect 
expression of what has been. 
Another exquisite mom ear of 
irony comes from Neil Kennedy 
as Medviedenko, padding after 
the superlative Masba of 
Patricia Healey, saying that 
Sarin (John Moffair) is afraid 
to be alone—unconsciously and 
unseutimentally displaying his 
own desperate loneliness. 

Miss Plowright conveys real 
tenderness, bandaging the 
Konstantin of Frank Grimes (a 
performance full of simple 
moving details). That leads me 
to hope that Arkadina’s struggle 
for Trigorin. at present a very 

funny anthology of fche touring 
actress’s repertoire, will in time 
be augmented with the woman’s 
actual terror. 


Some- of the -notices on this page are reprinted from yesterday's later editions. 


much rhe next first lady of the 
inv.n and ai the >ume time 
rather ton nld for Kurt Moll'* 
almost dashing Posner. Father 
and daughter appeared almost 
equally eligible. Vocally, 
though, ii was a delight to hear 
the quintet led off with such 
ea»c and quality of timbre. 

The rest nf rite cast contained 
one surprise and one discovery. 
Peter van der Blit, familiar to 
Scottish Opera audiences, turns 
Beck mess er into a very serious 
suitor, tall, well-groomed and 
smartly dressed until lie 
hecomes involved in the Act II 
free-for-all. He is no toad, but 
a smooth gentleman out for a 
little . self-advancement, and he 
is allowed to turn his songs a 
good deal better than most 
Beckme5sers. The discovery is 
Heinz Zednik, a marvellously 
litbe and witty David with the 
type of diamond-bright- tenor 
that* is-in very short supply at 
tbe moment. 

Christoph von Dohanyi. 
probably in reaction against tbe 
current vogue for-gentle, reflec¬ 
tive Meistersitiget' directed bv 
elder statesmen looking back 
affectionately die jvnge Lent\ 
was all aggression from rbe 
opening bars of the overture. 
Sometimes, as in the Act 
II finale and the whole of the 
Festwiese scene, it worked; ai 
others there was an obstinate 
refusal to reflect the humanity 
which is at the heart • of 
Schenk's superb production. 

And so to Berlin next spring 
where Fischer-Dieskau sings his

The millions who were seduced 
by the dated, bloodstained tin¬ 
sel and earthy undressed 
charms of Ursula Andress in 
Dr No on independent tele¬ 
vision missed a little gem wirb 
Warren Mitchell in Moss, by 
Bernard Kops, die Play for 
Today on BBC 1 on Tuesday. 

Once the first slow few 
minutes of scene-setting, the 
Jewish East End, were done, 
the marvellous Warren Mitchell 
took hold and be was, as 
always, a spellbinder. He has 
that curious power of presence 
that few actors possess. It is 
probably indefinable; if it 
were it would be only a trick 
and it would not be rare. (That 
curious bull-necked power of 
Mitchell, I am sure, gave Alt 
Garnett, the hypnotic comic, 
sound and fury and not Johnny 
Speight’s typewriter.) 

But, anyway, here was 
Mitchell playing an East End 
sweet shop miser, hated by his 
unlovable sons, but loving his 
grandson, whose . death in a 
traffic accident he blames on 
himself: the boy ran into the 
street after a Football while on 
an outing with the old man. 
Moss has a nervous breakdown 
and commits himself to an 
asylum. Bernard Kops provided 
much dark Jewish humour

In the nineteenth century, and 
even the early twentieth too, 
there would have been nothing 
unusual about going to bear a 
new piano concerto composed 
by a well-known concert pianist. 
In fact, it would have been far 
more strange to encounter a 
performer of note not given to 
spare-time composing. In our 
highly specialist world- 1 of today 
things are different. So Tues¬ 
day’s premiere of die piano 
concerto No 1, written between 
1966 and 1971, by the eminent 
Polish-born pianist, Andre 
Tchaikowsky, was an event. 
Perhaps because, anxious to 
stress the growing ascendancy 
of the composer in himself 
over tbe pianist, Mr Tchaikow¬ 
sky did not play it. The soloist 
with tbe RPO under -Uri Segal 
was Radu-Lupu. 

The work is in three con* 
tinuous, interlinked movements 
lasting for about 27 minutes. 
No one but a virtuoso of the 
first order could tackle the solo 
parr. Yet not a note is there 
for mere display. Piano and 
orchestra are as closely inte¬ 
grated in a disciplined, purpose¬ 
ful argument as in the concertos 
of Brahms. 

Although in his introductory 
note the composer let us into 
formal secrets (a Passacaglia to

John Link's production of Roy 
Kendall's 77ie Comet Lesson is- 
carefully muted in tone. Bntb

run-down set harmonize in a

a Salvation Army bandmaster's 
first lesson with a new .iiTicTe"ir; 
and the consistent soft tones nf 
rhe production manage to sug-

humanistic vignette. 

The bandmasters new student 
is a young woman who arrives 
for her lesson our nf brearb but 
none the less eager tn play -a 
wind instrument. Hj* hopes 
ihai she will study his instru¬ 
ment, the tenor horn, give way 
to her insistence on the one 
battered cornet, but as be sets 
about to teach her he discovers 
that she has nor come to the 
Mercy Seat and has not been 
saved. 

i The details nF rheir lives 
emerge haltingly, for. even 
armed with Mr Kendall’s fine- 
honed dialogue, rhe characters 
are oone too articulate. The- 
bandmaster is a widower whose 
commitment tn the Army has 
sometimes, since his wife's 
death, been only to the hand, 
His student, cannot believe in 
God, but she has fallen in love 
with the Army, its uniforms and 
sense ol purpose. She wants to 
join rhe band and be brave 
enough to say “this is what i 
stand for. even if it isn't 

A slightly apocalyptic mood 
suggests ihar the Army has 
failed, that society is breaking 
up. and that the' rules which 
keep nut a sincere non-believer 
are perhaps wrong. However, 
the bandmaster does bend tbe 
rules to allow rhe young woman 
into the band without the re¬ 
quired pledge nf faith in Jesus, 
though only because it is sug¬ 
gested that she is ill. and will 
soon die. The bandmaster’s act 
of kindness would be more. ’ 
meaningful without tbe melo¬ 
dramatic motivation of death 
(which perhaps reflects the 
play’s television origins), but 
Mr Lfok has subdued the meloj; 
drama and heightened the 
subtle inter-play of two well- 
drawn characters. 

Perhaps Diana QuickC, 
characterization depends too 
much on a shortness of breath,.-- 
though it is otherwise a finely-’ 
observed portrait, but Gerald 
Jam ex’s halting, almost stutter¬ 
ing bandmaster is a. fully real¬ 
ized and memorable character. 

Several readers have quits 
rightly pointed out that my re- " 
view of The Rmnmdker watr-- 
wrong to suggest thar the ~ 
recent production at the Green¬ 
wood Theatre was a London 
premiere. Io fact it opened in 
I9S7 and ran for several months 
with a rather notable cast in¬ 
cluding Geraldine Page as Lizzy 
and Sam Wanatnaker as Bill . 
Starbuck. 


here; afraid, no doubt, of the . 
basic sentimentality of his plot. 

“Geriatric ward is definitely 
out of the question", one son 
says. “The way they pamper 
them in there he’s liable to go _ 
oo to 100.'* Then he adds: 
“Actually, I think we ought to 
get him certified. All the best 
people have nervous break- ’ 
downs. It's all the rage." 

There was more black 
humour inside the hospital. - 
including that rather old one 
about electric shock treatment: 

“ I don’t want no electrics. I’ve ’* 
had enough shocks in my life, 
already.’’ And a new one: , 
“ Electrics l I didn’t think the, • 
national health could afford it, 
the price of electricity today.”,'. 
Moss turns to painting as occu-.- 
pationai therapy. And what do ^ 
you know', he’s a Grandma ", 
Moses, already I 

Now, as you can see, this is.a 
hard, theatrical role to -hoe:. 
But Mitchell managed it. along-- 
with the director Philip Saville** 
the supporting cast, and Tom\ 
Taylor, the artist, who did th£' 
paintings of the East End old>* 
days which Moss does,-and-. 
which rurn him into a primitivfr 
darling of the art world. Im-*’ 
probable, certainly, but the;, 
terror of his sanity- and of an/ 1 
unloved old age and a much*; 
loved past came across, ending- 
with a tear-jerking but beauri-.' 
fully done scene with Moss-* 
standing before his wife's grave,\ 
saying: “I*H tell you, if this-? 
world is sane, thank God Fm',1

the work is dramatic and' 1 
intense enough, in an often'.' 
strangely ominous, disquieting ‘ 
way, to suggest very strong l 
extra-musical motivation. There >

just as deep and tortured as“

Even the Finale, at first sug¬

explodes in vehemence before 
the sad, retrospective cadenza, 
(picking up threads from the ' 
opening Passacagha) and the 
hammered homecoming. 

If nearer in spirit to com¬ 
posers of the Berg-Bartok era 
than the avant-garde, Tchai¬

enough in finis work to make, 
his idiom sound personal- Much 
of it is also strikingly conceived 
as sound, with telling contrasts^ 
of splintered gtass and glassy 
cajm in the keyboard part. The 
Capriccio is a spine-chiUing 
tour de force for tfie orchestra 
too. a In view of fantastic diffi¬ 
culties, the performance held

Radu Lupu surpassing himself'

• The story of Red Rum' 
liliar to all -followers of 
also to ' housewives up 
the. country who like 
small bet on the Grand. 

He made an unusual 
is career when winning 
ace on the flat In 1967.. 
dog year he moved into 
and from that time his 
ary was born. He won 
i over hurdles, and when 
l fences in the' 1970-71 
star was quickly on the

for he will be only 11 

y i. 

"ses have their off days, 
fourth at Ayr earlier 

■ h he ran an “ inexplic¬ 


ably ** poor race—this is the word 
used by his trainer and jockey. 
Four days later he came out 
at Baydock Park, carrying his 
usual burden of 12st 71b, »nrf he 
was looking all over a winner 
when he Slipped up on the flat 
as he approached the third fence 
from home. Most win agree that 
but for this mishap he would 
Have won. It is one of the great 
fiiiugs.in racing that a horse who 
has cleared Berber’s Brook three 
years in succession with comfort, 
should come down on the flat. 

' He faces a stiff task this after¬ 
noon with list 71b: In September 
Meridian n beat Urn into third 
place at Carlisle when receiving 
29R>. Today Red Rum meets Ken 
Oliver's, horse on only 31b better, 
terms. Even Swell, a close second 
at Southwell and Kelso ip bis two. 
runs, and a good and safe jum¬ 
per, receives 311b, and Red Rum 
will do well indeed to give so 
much weight away. Should fie win 
he will certainly start favourite 
for the Hennessy GoldjCup next, 
month at Newbury. L . 

King’s Comet, a comfortable 
winner at Sedgefield 'and Spring 
Life, who had a similarly smooth 
win at Hexham, wiU attract most 


support'for the. Shnonburn Novices 
Hurdle, The selection is King’s 
Comet. He. has-had three busy 
seasons on the flat, has been 
placed many times, and he looked 
as if he enjoyed his jumping when 
he came away from his rivals tp 
win his race at Sedgefield. 

Red Marshal, caught close home 
at Carlisle In his Erst outing and 
beaten- less -than a length, is likely 
to add to -Peter Easterby’s fine- 
total of winners under both-rules 
in the Alnwick Castle Hurdle. He 
is an automatic choice, but there 
is nothing easy about finding the 
winner of the Hedgehog Novices' 
Steeplechase. 

Even Melody and Temple Rise 
"have both' won this month, and lx 
is always a sound principle. to 
. follow winning foam in novice 
. events over fences and hurdles 
in this'early stage of the jumping 
season. However, while giving a 
big chance to -these two horses, 
my selection is Irish Favour. For 
Newcastle’s chairman. Lieutenant 
Colonel R. Taylor, he has won a 
fair number of races on the flat 
and over hurdles, was runner-up 
in the CesarfrWiCch, and if he takes 
to fences, Si might turn out a 
useful novice.

By Michael Phillips : 

Racing Correspondent 

The ups and. downs of National 
Hunt xaang have been well illus¬ 
trated. .by Bob Champion's experi¬ 
ences during the last few days. 
At Huntingdon last Saturday he 
rode four- Winners, but at Plump- 
ton on Tuesday he had one of 
those days which constitutes a 
jockey’s nightmare. He rode four 
horses and three of diem fell. But 
at Ascot yesterday '. Champion 
.bounced- baric by winning the first 
division of the Binfleld Novices' 
Bardie on. Lanzarotes’ younger 
half brother, Tudor Flame, his 
only ride during the-afternoon. 

Tudor Flame looks, as thoogfa 
he will , do better jumping than 
he did flat racing even though be 
did manage to win once as a two- 
year-old at Salisbury. Looking at 
him it Is surprising that he ever 
ran so early in bis life. He is a 
Mg horse and he will look impos¬ 
ing once he fills oat and has the 
strength to match his huge frame. 

Inddemally, Lanzarote is un¬ 
likely to run at Sandown Park 
on Saturday in the Marlow Ropes- 
John Shearing hurdle because his 
trainer,- Fred Winter, is of the 
opinion that the ground wiQ be 
too firm unless there is rain in 
the meantime. That, at present, 
seems most unlikely. Fred Rim ell ~ 
win Inspect the course before-he 
derides whether or not to risk 
the champion hurdler. Comedy of 
Errors. The hurdles course at 
Sandown is firmer than Newbury 
was a week ago when Rim ell 
adjudged it to be too firm for 
his champion. So we may well end 
up without either of the stars at 
Sandown. 

Winter and Ms jockey, John. 
Francome, duly won the Bagshot 
Handicap Steeplechase with Late 
Night Extra who started favourite. 
Late Night Extra jumped fluently 
and this was his second victory 
this season. He is making up for 
lost time, having missed the 


whole of last season recovering 
from being fired on his off tore- 
leg. Winter has no ambitious 
plans for Late Nigbt Extra whose 
owners, Dr and Mrs Brown, have 
bad such fun in the oast with 
those two old favourites. Into View 
and Sonny Somers. 

Francome was unlucky not to 
win the last race as well on BUI 
Hobbs who made a dreadful hash 
of the last flight of hurdles. Only 
a fine piece of riding by Fran¬ 
come prevented him (allllig and 
Francome’s horsemanship was 
again the feature of the Embassy 
Premier Steeplechase (qualifier) 
although he did not win. 

Riding Knight of Fashion, a 
rangy seven-year-old by the 
French St Leger winner, Sicilian 
Prince, Francome seemed to have 
got the measure of Btil Smith on 
Exhibit B between the last two 
' fences. But at the speed that they 
were going Knight of Fashion 
stood a fraction too fiir back 
when he was asked to take off 
at the last fence and he pecked 
badly on landing. This was 
another superb piece of horse¬ 
manship on Francome’s part to 
even stay on board, but by the 
time that he bad recovered bis 
poise Knight of Fashion had lost 
his impetus and the advantage had 
passed to Exhibit B. If the two 
were to meet again 1 would back 
Knight of Fashion unhesitatingly. 

Exhibit B is owned by the 
American, Frank Manbedm, who 
had that excellent hurdler. Exhibit 
A, in training with Fulke Walwyn 
at Upper T-amfr onme a few years 
ago. Walwyn can choose between . 
Exhibit B and Ghost Writer for ' 
the final race of the series at 
Haydock Park in January, Ghost 
Writer having qualified by winning 
the heat run at Newbury a week 
ago. 

Riding like a man. inspired. 
Smith also won the Dunkirk Han¬ 
dicap Steeplechase for Walwyn on 
Black Andrew. Yet at one stage 


be thought, as he admitted later, 
that they were bound, to finish 
last of the four runners. That 
thought occurred after Black 
Andrew had made a mistake three 
fences from home. But showing 
great determination he crept back 
into the picture slowly but surely 
and with a lovely uninterrupted 
run up the inside bis strong finish 
was just more than Royal Relief 
could cope with. .. . 

' Nevertheless Royal ReUef ran a 
marvellous race. This .was his first 
appearance of the season and be 
looked a trifle burly. Yet he 
delighted Jeff King who expressed 
his firm intend on to ride Royal 
Relief again to tbe old horse's 
former-'partner, Lord Oaksey,- who 
was standing in the wings. Dan’l 
Widden also ran well to finish 
third, a length and a half behind 
In what was a highly competitive' 
race. 

His younger half-brother, Jan 
Stevrer, bed won the Valley 
Gardens Opportunity Handicap 
H or die for their owner, Mrs Ray 
Whiteway, the trainer, Derek 
Kent, and the jockey, Peter 
Haynes, so at least they did not 
leave the course empty-handed. 
Jan Stewer was bought for Mrs 
Whiteway three years ago by her 
former trainer. Simon Murant, 
with tbe proceeds of the Sovereign 
Handicap Hurdle which Dan’l 
Widden had just won at Newbury. 
Sadly Morant was forced to give 
up training, but at least he is not 
lost to raring. He is one of the 
Jockey Club's assistant starters.

By Rex Bellamy 

Even the asymmeDic bars—or, 
more precisely, an important 
integral bolt—could not take die 
strain when Ludmila Turishcheva 
set about them during the in¬ 
augural world cup competition, 
sponsored by the Deulp Mirror, at 
Wembley oa Tuesday. As tbe 
Russian gymnast wrapped herself 
round the equipment in a last 
powerful whirl of expertise, tbe 
whole thing began collapsing like 
a house of cards. She hurtled 
through the air to land at what 
turned out to be a safe distance. 

Not that Miss Turishcheva 
seemed to know or care which 
way the cookie was crumbling. 
She may have blinked. But this 
was not apparent from the press 
seats. Equipment may quiver-and 
fall. But not this' proud Russian. 
She came down, stood there firmly 
erect, and thus finished her 
exercise with astonishing poise 
and sang-froid before turning to 
see what the fuss was about. One 
felt that had the roof itself 
been tumbling round her ears, she 
would still have seen her task 
through before taking cover. 

That spoke for the courage and 
single-mindedness of the Olympic 
and world champion: now, too, 
the first holder of the worid cup. 
Afterwards', looking at us with 
a great depth of serenity in those 
dark eyes, she said she was un¬ 
aware that the apparatus was giv¬ 
ing way until someone shouted 
and she became conscious of the 
crowd's reaction: ” I think they 
were more nervous than I was.” 
She was disappointed, she said, 
that she could not finish the 
exercise as she had planned to. 
Still, only Olga Korbut matched 
her mark of 9.8. 

That was the only exercise in 
which anyone managed to equal 
Miss Turishcheva. The first thing 
she did, a vault, was all class, 
confidence, and authority. Her 
second vault wag even better: and 
that 9.75 mark was her lowest. 
Her excellence was so comprehen¬ 
sive that Miss Korbut, at 20 the 
enduring idol of the teenagers, 
was runner-up once more: as she 


To run at Laur&) 

Laurel, Maryland, Oct 29.— 
Comtesse de Loir, the French 
filly who finished second to Soow 
Knight in last Sunday's Canadian 
championship at Woodbine Park, 
Toronto, has been added to the 
field fox the Washington DC 
International on November S .— 
Renter. 


was in the Olynmics *nd 
world championship.- 

Still the smallest, though no 
longer the youngest of the Rns- 
sians. Miss Korbut had a bandage- 
round' her vnlnerable left ankle.- 
She fell on ber bottom as she 
landed from ber first vault. Bnt 
ber second was tidier and her only 
lapse after that was some rocky 
work on the beam. On this 
apparatus she did an extraordinary 
thing, lying face down and then, 
if you please, somehow bringing 
her legs over bead as if that- 
were an utterly natural thing to 
do—which, of course. Is the oppo¬ 
site of the truth. Ominously, she 
later limped away from her warm¬ 
up on the floor,' but came back 
to charm everyone with a delight¬ 
ful exercise. 

Can Miss Korbnt overtake Miss 
Tnrishcbeva and win a big title 
before even younger gymnasts take 
over—like Nadia Comaneci of 
Romania, aged 14, the European 
champion, who did not compete at 
Wembley ? Or must she be 
remembered as a runner-up wbos e 
personality and daring faav e , 
thanks to the modern magic of 
television, mad a her more widely 
known than anyone else in the 
sports history ? We may be closer 
to the answers after next year’s 
Olympics in Montreal. 

There was all this and more 
to feed the mind as we watched 
10 young women from Eastern-. 
Europe (seven of them teenagers) 
fling themselves about while the 
appropriately young crowd made 
echoing noises. When nothing 
much was happening, the band 
of the Life Guards maintained 
the spirit of the occasion with 
relentlessly joDy tunes.

Under the bonnefithere’s a whole new story. 

We developed the 2.7 litre Vd engine especially 
for our 604: in consequence it is powerful, tireless and 
smooth as a turbine. 

To balance the car properly—and thus allow it to 
handle like a sports saloon—we built this engine of : 
pressure castaluminium. - ■ 

. Its two overhead camshafts and compound 
carburettors allow it to deliver 136 bhp with a minimum : 
of fuss and a maximum of fuel economy (between 21 and 
23 mpg overall, depending whether automatic or manual . 
transmission is chosen). 

And the two alternative transmission systems 
developedby our engineers exclusively for the car, allow 
Peugeot drivers to enj oy the kind of smooth, quiet 
progress which has made our name synonymous with 
silence for eighty-five years. 

A symbol of success 

; You’d expect a 114 mph European express like the 
604to be a safe car. 

It is. 

It incorporates safety features found on our 
experimental safety vehicle, first shown at thel975Geneva 
Motor Show. 

Together with the kind of legendary reliability 
bom ofour innumerable rally wins, the 604 combines the 
virtues ofa grand bolide with those of a hand builtlimousine. 

For us, it’s a symbol of success. 

For the relatively few people lucky enough to 
own one, we believe it will provide tangible evidence that 
success breeds success.

The unheeded 
lesson of the Yom 
Kippur war 




Twp years after the Yom Kippur 
wav, both sides are sufficiently 
pleased with the result to invite 
a Sizable number of American, 
British and" continental Euro¬ 
pean defence specialists and 
journalists to rake over its ashes. 
Th| Cairo affair is going on this 
weik, while two weeks ago the 
International Symposium on 
Military Aspects of the Middle 
East Conflict was raking place 
in - Jerusalem. The Jerusalem 
symposium was efficiently or¬ 
ganized on the sandwich course 
principle, the days of discussion 
alternating with visits as the 
guests of the Israel defence 
Forces to the Golan Heights— 
where it was emphasized how 
lirtfe could be safely sur¬ 
rendered—and Sinai. The week 
began with Israel and American 
prtffcssors talking about the pos¬ 
sible application elsewhere of 
tvhpr was learnt from the war; 
ir ended with the articulate, con¬ 
fident accounts of the young 
Israel generals, whose concen¬ 
tration was on the particular 
battlefield across which they 
have fought so often. 

■Xhe contributions were fre¬ 
quently impressive, the military 
information given important, 
since as one delegate put it: 

The Yom Kippur war is the 
besj: war we have.” But, for all 
the* ingenuity shown in attempt¬ 
ing* to apply lessons from the 
Middle East" to Nato’s problems 
in *0601X31 Europe, the differ¬ 
ences . seemed more apparent 
than the resemblances. 

First impressions of the Yom 
Kitfpur war had rather cheered 
the west Europeans-^-th'e defen¬ 
sive weapons, precision-guided 
anti-tank missiles and the highly 
mobile SA-6 and SA-7 anti-air¬ 
craft missiles, appeared to 
dorpinate the battlefield. The 
Israel generals were anxious to 
correct any such impression. 
Certainly, massive artillery sup¬ 
port most in future be combined 
with every armoured operation 
to neutralize infantry-borne anti¬ 
tank missiles like the Soviet 
Sagger. Agreed, the air force 
should not be expected in future 
to give close air support to the 
army, which must be able to 
defeat the enemy’s ground forces 
unaided. But, as General Elazar, 
who, was Chief of Staff through¬ 
out';the battle, asserted firmly - : 
•‘The air force and the armour 
remain the decisive factors in 
the battlefield. Their superiority 
and*their success in battle are 
vital for victory in war.** 

As human types, the Israel 
gentrals who appeared before 
us , were indeed impressive. 
They left me with the feeling 
that the British military history 
of the past century would have 
been very different if some of 
them had been in command at 
key moments, such as Gallipoli 
and. Anzio. Yet, as die sympo¬ 
siums came to an end with a 
lecture from General Haim 
BariLev, former Chief of Staff 
andlnow Minister of Commerce 
and- Industry, explaining that 
the Arab achievement of sur¬ 
prise was from the Israel point 
of view the only thing that had 
gone wrong, one realized that 
the entire week’s discussion 
had< been conducted in the. 
wrong order and in the wrong 
way) 

T3he account of the officers 
in qharge of the battle should 
have come first instead of last. 
It should have been followed 
by ; a presentation of the 
formidable critique of Israel 
strategy which has been built 
up by such writers as Professor 
Walter Laqueur (in his remark¬ 
able ‘book Confrontations). 
Major-General Matityaiwu 


Paled, Colonel Moshe Miller 
and Amnon Kapeliouk (author 
of Israel, le fin des mythes). 

Then there, could have been 
a confrontation of the two 
Israel views of the war, the 
establishment view and its 
counter. As it was, the only 
reference made to the latter 
was in General Bar-Lev’s final 
paper, when he spoke of 
“ various far-fetched argu¬ 
mentations M according to which 
the causes of the surprise and 
some events of the war were 
attributed “to wrong fighting 
doctrines, to an inadequate 
balance of power, to a wrong 
composition of forces, _ to 
a freeze in operational 
thinking-” 

The fact is that the chief 
military lesson that Professor 
Laqueur, relying as he says 
very much on the work of 
Major-General Peled at this 
point, draws is that the Israelis 
failed to draw the right politi- 
cal lesson from the 1967 war. 
The war created the opportun¬ 
ity to make a political settle¬ 
ment but at the cost of with¬ 
drawing from the bccupied ter¬ 
ritories. However, the theory 
of the “ secure borders ” now 
prevented a political settlement 
from being made for military 
reasons. It was argued that the 
occupied territories were essen¬ 
tial to the defence of Israel. 

“ This was a misconception , 
declares Professor Laqueur. 
“Far from making Israel any 
stronger, the occupied terri¬ 
tories weakened its position.” 

The maintenance of the terri¬ 
tories was an additional finan¬ 
cial burden, the borders had to 
be manned by a bigger stondr 
jag army, and the Israel defen¬ 
ces had been tied, down to the 
Bar-Lev line of fortifications. 
Before 1967 the Egyptian army 
had- kept minimal forces m 
Sin.ai so when _ it began 
to deploy across it in strength, 
Israel bad plenty of warning 
and was able to strike, using 
itself the weapon of surprise. I 
After 1967 the two armies were i 
in confrontation across the . 
Canal and even more so after 
the war of attrition. The_ ini- | 
native passed to the Egyptians. ( 

But neither General Peled 
nor Professor Laqueur was on 1 
the platform (nor Amnon Kape¬ 
liouk for whom the “secure 
frontiers” were one of the 
myths that he declared, opti¬ 
mistically, to have died). 
General Elazar, in a back- 
handed way, confirmed part of 
their thesis. The lesson he drew 
from the Yom Kippur war was 
that Israel should have Jaun-; 
ched a massive preemptive 
strike—while the main argu¬ 
ment for the “secure 
frontiers ” has always been 
that, unlike the pre-1967 
borders, they allowed Israel 
the luxury of accepting the first 
blow. 

The message that was implicit 
in the failure to include such 
critics of Israel strategy was 
made explicit by the members 
of the government who spoke 
and made themselves available 
for questioning at various inter¬ 
vals in tbe symposium. The 
overwhelming impression that 
they conveyed was that the in¬ 
terim agreement with Egypt 
was very satisfactory and that 
there would now be a long 
pause to allow the position to 
be consolidated. 

The tone was symbolized by 
the reiterative contempt with 
which Mr Rabin, the Prime 
Minister, dismissed “ the so- 
called PLO” as an unsuitable 
body with which under any con¬ 
ditions to negotiate. It seems 
that the main military lesson 
of the post-1973 period is the 
failure to read the political 
lessons of the 1973 war.

Every man a gambling man 

All of us are tempted to take risks. Paying now so

! gambling a promising future so we can live it up here 
and now. 

i Risk taking can be painful, agonising, pleasurable

may even ignore "mathematical'' chance and stake 
his all on "psychological” chance instead.

‘ the gambler's behaviour and the point at which the 
compulsive gambler parts company.from those of us 
• who know when to stop. 


Before we unthinkingly follow the 
Government, as it searches for a 
politically expedient answer to 
devolution, into what a 
MF has reportedly, and contentedly, 
called its “constitutional quagmire , 
we might do worse than reflect on 
how and why the United Kingdom 
was formed. If we are not careful, 
the danger is that we shall stumble 
so deeply into the mire that the only 
escape wU be at the cost of serious 
damage to the unity, of Britain. 

Tbe Act of Union of 1707 was not 
the result of a referendum. It was not 
the result of a popnlar wish or senti¬ 
ment on either side of the border. 
As an English peer, making his case 
against union in the English House 
of Lords, said at the time: “ Though 
rhe Articles of Union are ratified by 
the Scotch Parliament, yet the bulk 
and body of that nation seems to be 
against them. Have not the murmurs 
of the people there been so tou*a* 
to reach even the doors of tne 
Parliament?” . 

There was a deep economic bitter- 
ness in Scotland about England as 
a result of the failure of the Danen 
trade scheme. The unpopularity in 
Scotland of the association with bng- 
land had already been demonstrated 
by two Acts of the Scottish Parjia- 
; me nt—one of which determined that 
no successor to Queen Anne_ should 
declare war without consulting the 
Scottish Parliament; anothe r pro- 


vided that if Queen Anne died with¬ 
out issue, Scotland could have a 
Protestant successor from the House 
of Stuart other than the one appointed 
by England, unless Scotland was given 
specific guarantees in respect of 
independent government, trade and 
other matters. 

Nor was the union popular among 
the English, who rendea to believe 
that they had paid too much finacn* 
dally for it. (Even the House of Lords 
was worried lest the 16 elected 
Scottish peers would dangerously 
breach the hereditary principle). 

Nevertheless, the union became a 
fact by the. political will of both sides, 
because responsible politicians m both 
countries came to accept, that, with¬ 
out it, the Island of Britain might 
break into two component parts—with 
tbe risk to both (and to theirdifferent 
established versions of the Protestant 
religion) that -they might fall 
vulnerable to the common enemy, 
France. 

I-t -was a question of stomaching 
an unpleasing remedy for a danger¬ 
ous disease. With che two countries 
still separate there was tiie danger 
chat Scotland might refuse to accept 
the succession, after Queen Anne, erf 
the Elecrress Sopbia of Hanover and 
her Protestant heirs; and might 
choose any one—perhaps even, if .the 
Jacobites were skilful, the exiled 
lames III and VIII, in which case 
England might be dragged into a 
Scottish civil war. 

The last message to Parliament by 
King William m just before tus death 
exhorted them to embark on a final 


and complete union, m 
fmee itwas dear that the fragile 
S 6 o a union of the two Crowns 
bTone person was not enough. The 
iSue became one of serious potaroal 
design in ihe first two years of hu 
successor. Queen Anne despite, and 
ta£Sfa™« because of, the prevail¬ 
ing bad atmosphere between die two 

^This* was not improved when the 
English House of Commons, as well 
as empowering the Queen.TO tresrt 
with the Scots about umon, also 
nassed what was called the Aliens 
Act! which threatened that all nauves 
rf Scotland who were not perma¬ 
nently settled in England, be 

considered as aliens., and that ™ere 
would be discrimination against 
Scottish trade unless the Scottish 

SSSErJS settled on the Elecrress 
Sophia by Christmas, 17(b. 

There were xhose in England who 
saw this threat as 

productive; indeed the first thing 
demanded by the Scottish negotiators 
for union was that the Aliens Act 
be repealed. Nevertheless, it had 
posed *e essential question : was 
Scotland, after an ad hoc union of 
100 years with England tinder a 
common sovereign (and in those days 
the sovereign! was. snM a r uler 1 to 
break away into alien status, or was 
it to join'up with its neighbour in 
indissoluble unity because shared 
interests were greater than any 
differences ? 

Tbe method by which the union 
was achieved is itself significant. It

The Scottish conumssiopers. and 

soma members of the 
ment, would have preferred Federal 
system, like the United 
(The Netherlands) or Switzerland, but 
tbe Engl' 5 * 1 com mission ers troni tiie 
start were adamant against this on 
the grounds that two parliaments 
federally linked could break the 
union whenever they liked. The first 
clause of the Act of Union states 
specifically that k is “forever . 

Some Wessons can, perhaps, ^ be 
learnt from this story. The first 
is that whatever changes are now 
made ought to result from some equi¬ 
valent process of deliberation by the 
parties concerned—and that emphati¬ 
cally does not mean simply between 
tbe English and the Nationalists. 
Since there is now only one parlia¬ 
ment and therefore no other legal 
body to “treat” with, it is surely 
essential that anv pronosed solutions 
should be arrived "at by “treaty” 
between all the interested parties 
of the United Kingdom and not simnly 
formulated by bureaucrats and im¬ 
posed by the government majority. 

In theory, it might be seen that,

addition to this, Uruguay's programme includes- several measures to

375, several important restrictions were eliminated:: the min imum 180-.

estimates for the rise of GNP for 1975 are in the 
order of 4 per cent, about twice the rate of growth 
of 1974. 

The limiting factor for the continuity of this 
policy is the deficit in the balance of payments on 
current account. Financing of this deficit at the 


present rate beyond 1976 would be difficult and 
inconvenient because of the high level of interna¬ 
tional indebtedness that would be required. There-, 
fore, if the world market situation does not 
improve within the next year, a new evaluation 
and more restrictive policies shall be necessary.

would be growing by 
almost 9% while the live¬ 
stock sector would keep at 
a stationary leveL 

Development of main items 

Within the farming sec¬ 
tor a positive development 
is shown by cereal, oil-seed 
and sugar beet crops, while 
potato and sorghum crops 
would be decreasing. 

Within the cereal item, 
a strong increase is noted 
in the 1974/75 wheat crops 
(+77.4%) and, to a 
smaller extent; rice 
(+14%). The other crops 
would show a decrease, 
especially in the case of 
corn. 

The increase in oilseeds 
is due exclusively to a 
recovery of the linseed 
crop with respect to the 
poor crop of 1974. 

Sector of manufacturing 
industries 

The index of this sector 
shows a substantial growth 
in the first six months of 
the year, with the'level of 


activity increasing by 6% 
as compared to that 
recorded in the first half 
of 1974. 

The expansionary be¬ 
haviour of textile, foodstuff 
(excepting meat-packing 
plants), oil refining, rubber 
and tobacco industries was 
basically responsible for 
the above increase. 

The good crops obtained 
in the farming sector led to 
the growth of some food¬ 
stuff industries. 

On the other hand, a 
firm external demand and 
a good level of sales in the 
domestic market favoured 
the textile sector growth, 
which has exerted a deri¬ 
sive influence on the 
general level of the 
secondary sector of the 
economy. 

As far as the rubber 
industry is concerned, the 
increase in activity was 
stimulated by the good 
levels of the external 
demand. 


The cement producing 
industries have also shown 
a dynamic behaviour. This 
expansion was encouraged 
by a continuation of the 
infrastructure works in tbe 
west region of Uruguay. 

The most important con- 
tr actional factors were 
noted in the meat-packing 
industry. The recession in 
the international demand 
for red meat precluded a- 
grearer development of this 
industry, which was only 
partially offset by the slight 
increase in domestic con¬ 
sumption. 

Prices 

In the first half of 1975 
consumer prices increased 
by 25.6% while wholesale 
prices increased by 2S.3%. 
In the last two months of 
the semester . prices in¬ 
creased in a more moderate 
way. By. the end of April 
consumer prices had in¬ 
creased by 18.9% over tbe 
level of December 1974, 
which implied an increase 


at an accumulative monthly 
rate of 4.4%, while in the 
following two months tbe 
general index level 
increased by 5.6%, which 
implied 1 an accumulative 
monthly rate of 2.8% dur¬ 
ing this two-month period. 

Tbe important policy 
regulations on ' prices and 
incomes introduced by the 
.national authorities, supple¬ 
mented then by the 
measures prescribed by the 
advisory and price controll¬ 
ing bodies,' marked the 
beginning of a period of 
greater price.stabtiity. 

In this way, it is expected 
that during tbe whole year 
1975 the annual inflation 
rate will be less than a half 
of that experienced in 1974. 
This substantial reduction 
which it is expected to 
achieve will take place 
without affecting the pro¬ 
duction and employment 
levels. 


Recent development and financing of 
the balance of payment in Uruguay 


The recent development 
of the international situa¬ 
tion in connection with the 
prices of basic products has 
caused a tremendous 
impact on the balance of 
payment in Uruguay. This 
country must import all the 
crude oQ it consumes which 
is mostly used to produce 
electric power. 

Prior to the price incre¬ 
ment which came into force 
at the end of 1973. Uruguay 
spent 50 million dollars per 
annum to import crude oil. 

- At the present time, this 
country spends more than 
150 milli on dollars to pur¬ 
chase the same quantity of 
oiL In addition, and as a 
result of these inflationary 
conditions and the genera¬ 
lized economic recession 
now prevailing in _ the 
world, the international 
market price of its basic 
export product—meat—has 
decreased considerably and, 
what is even worse, the 
demand of this product has 
been drastically cut down 
mainly because .of the 


restriction introduced by 
the E.C.M. 

Id view of the deficit 
shown by the. balance of 
payments originating from 
the facts listed above, 
Uruguay has now been 
forced to resort to foreign 
credit. In order to obtain 
credit, however, Uruguay 
has conducted negotiations 
based not only on its real 
needs but also by introduc¬ 
ing a policy of internal 
reorganization in terms of 
a firm end well coordin¬ 
ated policy of monetary; 
exchange, credit and Treas¬ 
ury regulations which made 
it possible to reach total 
social stability. 

As a result of this situa¬ 
tion, in the second half of 
1974 Uruguay obtained a 
loan amounting to 54 
million dollars from LM.F. 
under the terms and con¬ 
ditions of the Oil Facility. 
The atmosphere of 
reliability prevailing in 
Uruguay has made it 
possible for the Govern¬ 
ment to attract local and 


foreign investors and place 
Treasury Bonds for a total 
of 74 million dollars be¬ 
tween January and August 
1975. 

A stand-by agreement 
making it possible for 
Uruguay to obtain a loan in 
the amount of 22 million 
dollars was signed in April 
1975 and an additional loan 
amounting to 26 million 
dollars under the Oil 
Facility was later obtained. 

The economic policy 
based on the agreement 
made with the LM.F. is 
also contributing to facili¬ 
tate the use of other sources 
of foreign financing. An 
example of this is the loan 
agreement . which . has 
recently been signed with a 
pool of banks in London 
for an initial amount of 
110 million dollars. 

Since the foreign debt of 
Uruguay amounts to almost 
950 million dollars at the 
present time, the observers 
may be inclined to predict 
difficulties in the future. 
This is not correct, how¬ 


ever, because the Treasury 
Bonds are to be amortized 
in a 5 to 10-year period and 
the loan obtained from the 
pool of banks in London 
will be due in 5 years with 
a two-year grace period. 
And above all, because the 
gold reserves of Uruguay 
at the current market price 
amount to more than 
600 million dollars, that is, 
a gold volume of almost 
4 million troy ounces, and 
because the total amount 
of foreign debt, which in¬ 
cludes liabilities of up to 
40 years, is equal to less 
than two years of exports 
which would . totalize 
500 million dollars under 
normal meat export condi¬ 
tions. 

The financing obtained 
from foreign sources and 
in the process of being 
obtained from international 
institutions is not only in¬ 
tended to face the deficit 
of the balance of payments 
but also to take care of the 
harmonic development of 
the country.

THE TIMES THURSDAY OCTOBER 30 1975 






and the 



Traditionally, Uruguay and the United Kingdom 
have maintained important and fruitful business 
and financial relations. It is pertinent to recall that 
as early as the middle of the past century banking 
capitals were brought into Uruguay in order to 
contribute to the financing of export trade. Later 
on, successive British investments participated in 
the Uruguayan economy, favouring its development. 
Of far-reaching effect, in this connection, was the 
purpose for which the funds brought into the 
country were used: transportation and infra¬ 
structure (railways, tramways, for the city of 
Montevideo, drinking water and sewerage); energy 
(gas); industry (meat-packing plants, canned foods 
and others); services (banking, insurance compa¬ 
nies), etc. Some of these activities continue to 
support the Uruguayan development nowadays. 
Others, as it is the case with transportation, drink¬ 
ing water and gas, were transferred to the 
Uruguayan Government basically after World War 
II by mutual agreement of the parties.—At the 
present rime, there is a considerable business flow 
between both countries, which is reflected in the 
figures of the following table:

Paysandu-Colon bridge : it links Uruguay and Argentina by road as well as the bridge being 
constructed at present between Fray Bentos and Puerto Unzue, also across the Uruguay river, 
thus facilitating trade within the River Plate basin area. It will be opened to public use in 
November, 1975. 


Promotion of local and foreign 
investment in Uruguay 


Efforts to promote invest¬ 
ments are at the present being 
made in Uruguay in order to 
achieve the development goals 
set by the government. Wide 
range economic measures are 
being enforced which make it 
possible for both market and 
price mechanisms to revitalize 
the economic activities in the 
country and thus reduce to a 
considerable extent the state 
controlling policies which pre¬ 
vailed in the past. In this 
Tegard, the Uruguayan authori¬ 
ties consider that foreign 
capital along with domestic 
savings have an important role 
to play in order to strengthen 
and consolidate the economic 
development of the country 
and as a result it was deemed 
necessary to stimulate both the 
local and foreign investments. 

In order ro carry out this 
policy, two lhws were passed in 
1974 which facilitate invest¬ 
ments : 

1 . The Law of Industrial Pro¬ 
motion. 

This law has been designed 
in order to permit both the 
domestic and foreign enter¬ 
prises to fulfill their industrial 
programmes and enable the 
country to achieve the goals 
listed in the Development 
Plan, that is, the increase of 
efficiency and productivity, the 
establishment of new indus¬ 
tries and the improvement of 
technological research. 

In order ro enjoy the 


benefits deriving from this 
law, both the enterprises and 
the activities conducted by the 
enterprises must be declared 
to be of National Interest. The 
declaration is to be made by 
the government at the request 
of the interested parties or 
simply by an official resolu¬ 
tion. 

As soon as the declaration has 
been issued, the government 
stipulates the facilities the in¬ 
vestor will be granted in order 
to be able to operate in the 
country. Here is a list of such 
facilities: 

—special credits for working 
capital or for purchasing 
machines and buildings and for 
paying off fiscal debts, etc. 

—tax mitigation, such as a 
60% exemption on social 
security burden, total exemp¬ 
tion on sales, immunity from 
import taxation {custom duties, 
port and consular fees), etc. 

2. The Law of Foreign Invest¬ 
ments. 

This law entitles the foreign 
investor to draw both capital 
currency and profits. He is not 
subject to any exchange con¬ 
trol or restriction regulations 
at the present time and in the 
Euture. A contract which is. 
signed by the investor and the 
Uruguayan Government and 
which is registered at the Cen¬ 
tral Bank of Uruguay enables 
him to operate freely within 
the territory' of the country. 
The amount of capital 
and the capital inflow regula¬ 


tions are stipulated in the con¬ 
tract. Capital contributions of 
all kinds are accepted such as 
machinery, technology, trade 
marks, etc. The shortest term 
for capital inflow is three 
years. 

Foreign capital in Uruguay 
is allowed to be invested in 
any kind of industrial or com¬ 
mercial activity whatsoever. In 
order, however, to operare in 
the field of finance, communi¬ 
cations, electricity petrochemi¬ 
cals, cattle raising and agricul¬ 
ture, freezing, atomic energy, 
railways and other related in¬ 
dustries, a especial governmen¬ 
tal authority is reguired. 

The benefits of - the law 
extend even to the loans which 
are obtained abroad by the in¬ 
vestors and also to their in¬ 
terests permitting to finance 
the activities. These . loans 
require an authority from the 
government which is similar to 
the authority granted ro direct 
investments. 

The Law of Foreign Invest¬ 
ments in Uruguay is more 
favourable for the investor 
than any other similar laws, 
such as for instance the Law of 
the Andean Pact. 

The benefits of the two laws 
are addible, for which reason a 
foreign investor can also 
obtain credit and fiscal facili¬ 
ties. 

Special laws are also .in 
force which are intended to 
foster the fishing, the hotel 
and the forest industries. 


Uruguay lies just south of Brazil on the northern 
shore of the Rio de la Plata estuary. Uruguay claims 
some of the richest agricultural land iu the conti¬ 
nent. The Atlantic Ocean forms its eastern boundary 
and the Rio Uruguay, from which the country 
derives its name, forms the frontier with Argentina 
on the west. The entire national territory is popu¬ 
lated and effectively used, though over half of the 
nation’s 2.7 million people are concentrated in the 
capital and principal port city, Montevideo. 

Spanish is the national language and Roman 
Catholicism is the predominant religion. The popu¬ 
lation is made up entirely of immigrants primarily 
European. 

In 1828, Uruguay became an independent state. 
Portugal and Spain contended for control of the 
region throughout the preceding century because 
of its strategic location on the north shore of the 
Rio de la Plata. By 1820, a national hero, Jose 
Gervasio Artigas, launched the first attempt to 
gain autonomy for the region. Formal independence 
was gained in peace negotiations following a war 
between Argentina and Brazil in 1828. 



Montevideo harbour : exceptionally endowed by nature, it is tbc natural outlet of the huge richness 
held by the River Plate basin area (Argentina, Paraguay, Southern Brazil and Uruguay). 


Introductory Statement 


Uruguay, though one of the 
smallest republics in terms of 
population and national terri¬ 
tory in South America, has 
considerable wealth in land 
and human capital. Nearly 
90% of the national territory 
is devoted to agricultural use. 
primarily for livestock grazing. 
Uruguay’s 2.7 million people 
are among the best educated 
and healthiest in the continent. 

Since March, 1972, the Uru¬ 
guayan government has intro¬ 
duced a number of economic 
reforms whose purpose is to 
increase export income and 
encourage more rapid econom¬ 


ic growth. Among the reform 
measures are a mini-devalua¬ 
tion exchange rate system, fis¬ 
cal incentives to exporters, 
reduction of exchange controls, 
and import restrictions, and 
the lifting of price controls. 

The structure of the Uru¬ 
guayan economy has remained 
stable over the past decade. 
Agriculture and livestock 
production account for 15 & of 
GDP, industry accounts for 
32%. and services make-up the 
remainder. 

Sudden shifts in the inter¬ 
national terms of trade have 
dominated Uruguay’s foreign 


trade and balance of payments 
position in the past two years. 
High world prices for beef and 
wool sharply improved the 
trade balance in 1973, Higher 
petroleum prices brought a 
like deterioration in the trade 
balance in 1974. Falling beef 
and wool prices will worsen 
the nation’s trade position fur¬ 
ther in 1975. This short-term 
price development tends to dis¬ 
guise the positive effects of 
revised exchange and trade 
policies introduced since 1972. 
Longer term prospects for im¬ 
proving the trade balance are 
brighter. 


Area and population 


About 90 % of Uruguay’s 
total land area is agricultural 
land. The total area devoted to 
agricultural use is approxima¬ 
tely 42 million acres, of which 
36 million acres are classified 
as arable pasture or permanent 
grassland. Under 10% of the 
land in agricultural use is 
planted for harvesr. 

The nation’s topography is 
excellent for agricultural use. 
There are no deserts or high 
mountains. The national terri¬ 
tory is divided roughly into 
three regions: the coastal low¬ 
lands, the interior plateau, and 
the low rolling grasslands. 
Excellent drainage occurs 
throughout the couarry. The 
climate is temperate with 
moderate seasonal changes and 
adequate rainfall # distributed 
evenly in all regions of the 


country. Freezing temperatures 
occur seldom. Only occa¬ 
sionally, the country suffers 
either extreme drought 0 r 
flood conditions. 

Better than 90% of Urq. 
guay’s population is literate 
and the life expectancy at 
birth of 69 years is longer than 
in any other South American 
nation. The relatively slow 
pace of population growth 
12% per annum, reflects the 
low birth rate of 22.6 births per 
thousand population annually. 
Uruguay is the most urbanized 
country in the continent; 80 % 
of the population lives in cities. 
The Uruguayan population pr^ 
file is mature in comparison 
with neighbouring republics. 
Approximately 36% of the pop. 
ulation is under 20 years, com¬ 
pared with more than 50% for 
South America as a whole. 


The Uruguayan 
Economy 


Brief economic 
history 

By the early postwar period, 
the Uruguayan government had 
established the economic 
policies that have shaped the 
structure and character of the 
Uruguayan economy until very 
recently. 

Uruguay's inability to import 
many manufactured goods dur¬ 
ing the second world war en¬ 
couraged the development of 
domestic manufacturing indus¬ 
tries. As European industry 
recovered from the war and 
began to export again, Uru¬ 
guayan industrialists lobbied 
for higher tariffs to protect 
their small relatively high-cost 
operations from foreign com¬ 
petition. This protection further 
stimulated industrial growth to 
create jobs and revenue sources 
for the government The cost 
of the manufacturing ineffici¬ 
encies resulting from this 
policy was borne by the con¬ 
sumer. 

Since 1972, the Uruguayan 
authorities have begun to re¬ 
orient economic policies toward 
the promotion of exports and a 
progressive elimination of eco¬ 
nomic controls. In March, 1972, 
the exchange rare system was 
modified to keep the peso's 
external purchasing power in 
line with its domestic purchas¬ 
ing power. This exchange rate 
reform has already had some 
visible effects in encouranging 
the growth of non-traditional. 
exports. The export tax has 
been modified so that when 
world prices drop below a cer¬ 
tain minimum level, the export 
product is no longer taxed. The 
public sector has procured 
international, _ development 
agency loans to improve pas¬ 
tures and infrastructure in 
agricultural areas. New pro¬ 
ducts produced for export are 
eligible for tax rebates. 

In addition, since July 1, 
1975, a number of new regula¬ 
tions have been in effect which 
reduce exchange controls and 
import restrictions. 


To further encourage invest- 
merit, the authorities have 
begun to lift price controls on 
basic commodities. Policies are 
directed at increasing the por¬ 
tion of public sector expendi¬ 
ture devoted to investment 
projects. 

In addition, a law protecting 
foreign private investment was 
approved in 1974. 

Terms of trade 

In the period immediately 
following World War II, the 
Uruguayan economy benefited 
from high world prices for its 
primary exports, beef and 
wool, and from the introduction 
of import substitution policies 
which stimulated the growth of 
domestic industry. During the 
fifties, Uruguay had among the 
highest standards of living in 
the developing world. The high 
per capita level of exports, 
much higher than in either 
Argentina or Brazil, enabled 
the country to import the fuels, 
materials, and manufactured 
goods that it could not produce 
locally. High demand for its 
exports brought exceptionally 
high levels of foreign exchange 
reserves. From the mid-fifties 
until 1972, Uruguay’s terms of 
trade index, the ratio of the 
price it receives for each unit 
of export to the price it must 
pay for each unit of import, 
deteriorated. In 1973, excep¬ 
tionally high prices for wool 
and beef improved the terras 
of trade to an all time high. 
But the skyrocketing price of 
oil in 1973. and 1974 soon 
erased Uruguay’s terms of trade 
advantage. 

• Ratios compare the export 
price Uruguay receives for 
beef, wool, and an index of all 
exports with the posted price 
for Venezuelan oil. The terms 
of trade index compares an 
index of all Uruguayan exports 
with the U.S. wholesale price 
index which is considered a 
proxy for prices for world- 
traded goods.

Inflation 


In the past two decades Uru¬ 
guay has experienced one of 
the highest average annual 
rates of inflation in South 
America. In the years 1965-74 
price increases averaged 63.5 % 
pee annum. Repeated efforts 
to allay the rates of inflation 
have been successful for brief 
periods and consequently the 
annual rate of inflation has 


varied widely from year to 
year. The single most import¬ 
ant factor contributing to the 
rapid pace of price increases 
was the creation of money by 
the Central Bank to cover ex¬ 
panding public sector deficits. 
The pace of inflation, which 
has been above the 20 year 
average since 1972, climbed 
even further in 1974, reaching 
an annual rate of 107% com¬ 
pared with 7 8%in the previous 
year.

government has introduced a 
number of measures including 
support prices, direct subsi¬ 
dies, and fiscal measures 
penalising under-utilization of 

grazing lands. __ 

The cattle industry has shown 
signs of growth in the past 2-3 
years after 35 years of virtual 
stagnation. While production of 
beef approximated the 35-year 
average of 275,QpO tons in 1973, 
it rose to 330,000 tons in 1974. 
Furthermore, restrictions on 
domestic consumption have 
increased the size of the herd 
from 8.5 million in 1970 to an 
estimated 11.5 milli on in 1975.

Great Champion of the Hereford breed—Prado 1974, an excellent proof of the achievements attained by Uruguay as far as stockraising is concerned, justifying the 
well deserved fame of the Uruguayan beef in the international markets. The present stock amounts to approximately 11 million beads. Tbe Champion was 22 months 
old and his weight 857 kgms. 


- Other important industries 

- are metal manufactures, chemi¬ 
cals, petroleum and coal deri¬ 
vatives and miscellaneous man¬ 
ufacturers producing snch pro¬ 
ducts as clothing, footwear, 
wood products and furniture, 
paper and paperp.ulp, printing 
.and publishing, leather pro¬ 
ducts, fur products, rubber 
products, non-metallic minerals 
and basic metals. 

• Mining currently contributes 
less than 1% to total economic 

- output. Development of signif¬ 
icant iron ore deposits in 
Zapucay and • Valentines could 
considerably boost output in 
this sector. The government is 
seeking to interest foreign 
capital in. the project. 

Uruguay's existing power 
generation capacity is large 
relative to other South Ameri¬ 
can countries. In 1974, 
installed electrical capacity 
amounted to 475 megawatts 
and provided more than 700 
kilowatt hours per capita 
annually compared with the 
regional average rate of 
production of 440 kilo¬ 
watt hours per capita. More¬ 
over, Uruguay is building 
additional hydroelectric capac¬ 
ity. One hydroelectric station 
is being built jointly with 
Argentina at Salto Grande and 
the project’s output will add 
300 megawatts to its current 
power generation capacity. The 
first stage of the project will 
be in operation in 1979. A 
second ' major' hydroelectric 
project at Palmar is receiving 
priority consideration ‘ and 
foreign financing has now been 
secured. A third project at 
Laguna Merin also has been 
under consideration. 

Currently, however, hydro¬ 
electric power fills only 16% of 
total energy consumption 
needs. Oil accounts for 75% of 
total energy consumption and 
coal provides the remaining 
9 %. 

Currently Uruguay relies 
entirely on imported oil to fill 
its refinery capacity and meet 
domestic oil needs. Oil imports 
have fluctuated between 12-13 
million barrels annually in 
recent years. Around 40% of 
electrical energy is generated 
by thermal units, consuming 
17% of total imports, transpor¬ 
tation and residential uses 
account for 37% and 23% 
respectively of all oil consump¬ 
tion.. 

The government’s policy to 


reduce Uruguay’s reliance on 
oil imports in 1974 included a 
number of measures to reduce 
consumption and efforts to in¬ 
crease domestic energy sup¬ 
plies. To curb oil consumption, 
the authorities raised the 
domestic price of oil and im¬ 
posed direct controls on gas¬ 
oline consumption and non-in¬ 
dustrial use of electrical 
energy. Efforts to increase 
domestic energy supplies have 
included increased emphasis 
on fbe • hydroelectric power 
projects already mentioned 
and the tendering of bids for 
offshore exploration for oil. 

Energy sonrees and 
government role 

Since 1903, the government 
has participated directly in in¬ 
dustry and state run or regu¬ 
lated monopolies have had an 
important role in the economy. 
Among the most important 
state enterprises today are the 
National Administration for 
Fuels, Alcohol and Cement 
(ANCAP) ; the State Electric 
Power and Telephone Adminis¬ 
tration (UTE) ; the Adminis¬ 
tration of State Railroads 
(AFE) ; the Uruguayan 
National Airlines (PLUNA) 
and the National Packinghouse. 

In addition to direct partici¬ 
pation in industry, the govern¬ 
ment has promulgated an In¬ 
dustrial Development Law to 
promote private investment in 
industrial development. Indus¬ 
tries whose development is 
considered in the national in¬ 
terest are eligible for special 
tax. incentives. The tariff struc¬ 
ture has favoured imports of 
capital goods and essential taw 
materials. However, Uruguay’s 
programme for tbe next 12 
months includes several 
measures to reduce the tight¬ 
ness of the exchange controls 
and import regulations. The 
authorities believe that the 
previously existing complex 
exchange system and virtual 
quota system for imports, 
while ostensibly protecting 
domestic industry, tended to 
discourage economic growth. 

Public investment in 
industrial infrastructure bas 
been low due to the low level 
of public sector savings in 
recent years. Several large 
investments are now in progress 
or under consideration in the 
public sector, including the two 
hydroelectric schemes men¬ 
tioned previously.

THE TIMES THURSDAY OCTOBER 30 1975 


Foreign trade and balance 
of payments position 


Sudden shifts in the inter¬ 
national terms of trade have 
-dominated Uruguay’s foreign 
trade and balance-of-psymems 
...position in the past two years. 
•■An increase in world prices for 
'beef and wool, Uruguay’s major 
■■exports, in 1973 markedly 
jimp roved the overall balance of 
payments. But sharply higher 
.^petroleum prices early in 1974 
■and the subsequent downturn 
in beef and wool prices in late 
‘3 974- and early 1975 reversed 
.. the terms of trade advantage. 

* This adverse price swing 
' tends to disguise the positive 
.effects that had begun to be in 
evidence as the result of 
-exchange rate and tax reforms 
-'introduced in 1972. The intro- 

- .duction of a mini-devaluation 
system brought the peso down 

' t b a rate which was more favour¬ 
able to exporters and brought 
a- significant increase in tha 
'volume of beef sales. As a 
result of recent investment 
incentives, investment in the 
•'cattle industry has increased, 

. .resulting in an increase in the 
,4ize of The herd for the first 
■time in many years. Even more 
'impressive gains have been 
, /Bade more recently in the 
-agricultural products group as 
‘ a result of the more realistic 
.exchange rate policy. This pro- 
■ .duct group which includes 
* grains, oilseeds, fruit and 
-. vegetables, both fresh and 
.processed, increased 56 per 
■cent in value in 1974. Sales of 
‘ other products ”, mainly 
"manufactures, doubled in the 
same period. 

The overall balance of pay¬ 
ments was in deficit in 1974. 

. The monetary authorities hold¬ 
ings of gross foreign assets 
.declined only S3.7 million how¬ 
ever, because Uruguay was able 

- to borrow S57 million under the 
International Monetary Fund’s 

-1974 Oil Facility. 

In the face of world markets 
,wbich continue to be unfavour¬ 
able for Uruguay’s principal 

- exports, beef and wool, the 
^authorities propose to continue 

- to support a more flexible 
" "exchange rate policy and to 
. promote export industries 
1 through fiscal and credit incen¬ 
tives- They propose to curb 

.. demand for imports through 
fiscal restraint and restrictive 
credit policies, while reducing 
" wasteful importing by eliminat¬ 
ing restrictions which have ten- 
7 ~ded to distort import patterns 
. ’in the past.

policy 
and 
exchange 
controls 


The unit of Uruguayan cur¬ 
rency is the peso. Since 
March 2, 1972, there have been 
two foreign exchange markets. 
On August 15, 1975, the peso/ 
dollar exchange rate on the 
commercial market was NPs 
2.30 to the dollar, and on the 
financial market it ■ was NPs 
2.85 to the dollar. 

The commercial market 
applies to purchases of imports 
and sale of exports. This rate 
is fixed periodically by the 
Banco Central del Uruguay 
and is subject to frequent 
44 mini-devaluations ”. The pace 
and magnitude of the mini¬ 
devaluations of the commercial 
exchange rate are essentially 
linked to the rate at which the 
peso’s internal purchasing 
power is eroded by inflation. 

The financial market applies 
to all non-commercial transac¬ 
tions. Ou September '25, 1974, 
this became a free market. 
Rates are subject only to sup¬ 
ply and demand conditions. All 
operations in this market are ■ 
handled exclusively by banking 
institutions which must report 
their operations to the Banco 
Central daily for statistical 
purposes. -The Banco. Central 
may supervise the regulation 
of this market to avoid spec¬ 
ulation. 

Legislation concerning the 
control of foreign exchange 
transactions is currently under 
review and a number of revi¬ 
sions have already been 
applied. The relative scarcity 
of foreign exchange ' has 
encouraged the establishment 
of domplex controls in the 
past. Most of these controls 
were designed to ensure that 
foreign exchange would be 
available for essential imports. 
However, the monetary auth¬ 
orities believe that the 
methods used in the past to 
control import payments 
resulted in znisallo cation of

have intention to - dismantle 
many of the existing, exchange^ 
controls and use ' realistic 
exchange rate and -credit poli¬ 
cies to manage import .growth. 
They intended .to rely more- 
heavily on free -marker prices 
to allocate the- scarce foreign 
exchange among import pur¬ 
chases. .' 

• Among the regulations. elim¬ 
inated on or before July 1, 
1975, were: 

(1) The • current quota sys¬ 
tem winch permits a" minimum ' 
import purchase without prior 
deposit; 

(2) The six-month deposit on 
import purchases above' the 
quota limit which "currently 
range from 315% to 1200%' of 
the value of the above quota 
imports; and 

(3) The requirement that 
importers obtain a minimum of 
180-day financing for all im¬ 
port purchases." 

A uniform 35% prior deposit 
on import purchases was im¬ 
posed to avoid an excessive in¬ 
crease in liquidity when the 
prior deposit regulation was 
lifted. All exports must' be 
registered with the Central 
Bank by means of an export 
declaration. 





The Bank- of the -Republic 
performed., all ' central' bank' 
functions * until.- the '.. Central • 
Bank of. Uruguay was formed 
in 3967. It-still performs many 
special : functions ’and. is by far 
the larged commercial bank la 
the country. It is not subject 
to the same reserve require¬ 
ments as the rest, of tiie.com- 
• mercial banks. • The - Bank of 
the Republic:must keep a fixed 
reserve of 20% on all private 
deposits and, need not back 
official agency deposits with 
reserves. It has received all im- 
.port deposits 'made to obtain 
an exchange • rate guarantee 
during the ' 180-day minim um- 
period";" which. • has_ been 
required for. foreign financing 
of most imports.• ' . 

The Central'Bank is the sole 
issuer of currency. It holds the 
reserves of the banking system, 
issues all monetary regulations, 
and is the bank of the Central 
Government. • 

Reserve requirements of the . 


banking system are relatively 
high. -On October 1, 1974; all 
reserve requirements .were 
reduced in -order - to .proride 
increased liquidity to the bank¬ 
ing system and to assist banks 
whose financial position might 
be strained by a concomitant 
increase in permissible interest 
rates - paid on deposits. 

Currently, legal reserve 

requirement are 30 % on 
.demand deposits, 10% on time 
deposits and 20% on foreign 
currency deposits. 

On February : 15, 1975, the 
monetary authorities estab¬ 
lished marginal reserve 

requirements of 40.% on depo¬ 
sits in excess of the December 
1974 average.

TISH POLICY JFOR AID 


gSyjnjent Aid is lone of those 
^ts . which arouses idealism 
ggryoung and cynicism in the- 
^Xo yoeng people, tbe.enor-. 
M>f- ; the ;task of -alleviating so' 
j*J longer and-suffering is a 
Sig^rbalienge. To the old, 
jSfis 1 io. produce a defeatist 
agi^Bt:outsrdecoritrfbutions 
to.', make any - sig- 
ejo&ifnpact, and may well be 
gwriSedrOy inept if hot corrupt 
gjouttotis in the. third world. 

»Jgck of fonts in the deve- 
Rnfc ; aid policy of ; successive 
^.l^oyerziments -has been 
ffl&d ' to - foster cynicism 
IJ'thap adealism. It is symip> 
ffici.jthgt .Yesterday’s. White 
^-should have been the first 
||erge from the Ministry for 
§^' Development for eight 
m -.Entitled: . The . changing 
msis in British aid policies:

smore cahdidly be labelled : 
vSsh -add rpolicy: a strategy 
! X Hitherto bilateral aid

S of the day has acceded, 
fifed emphasis on infrastruc- 
jsjbrojects; like ports, roads, 
"ttys, power stations and so 
^it Tviffr'no- dear aims' and 
■-ia in mind. 

* White Paper’s intention is 
fethis pragmatic patchwork 
n be jgraaually replaced.by 
icentration oh the poorest 


countries,. especially those most 
. 'seriously affected-by the rise in 
oil prices; and by an emphasis 
on the. poorest, groups .within 
those .countries, principally 
• through programmes for rural 
development.-. A majority' of .the 
poorest popple in the world con- 
tinue io lfve nj xural areas»and 
the..White J^LpeTi.sees increased 
agricultural' production as the 
.best hope-of alleviating their Tot. 

In the field of ‘ aid, ; where 
donors : must 'eschew. anything 
resembling interference; in the 1 
internal ; affairs of recipient 
countries,-there is often a gap' 
between stated goals and actual 
performance. But-if the govern- 
' meat could shew' that its aid is 
incr'easingly being used to help 
the starring minions in ~the 
countryside of .India, Bangladesh' 
.-. and Sri Lanka to feed themselves, 
it. would do much to dissipate 
fears that too., much money is 
' being poured down too many . 
urban drains. * . 

For too long, western aid has 
. concentrated pn the sort -' of 
capital intensive projects asso¬ 
ciated with a western technology 
based on high labour costs. 1 The 
White Paper acknowledges 'that 
large-scale schemes heed, to be' 
-replaced by small, labour inten¬ 
sive projects likely to -prevent _ 
the remorseless drift to the 
towns. There is a certain con¬ 
vergence here with the growing 
feeling that the western world 
too could benefit from more 


•Intermediate or '"low - impact ” 
■technology; and -. fewer massive,- 

riph nniianiring industr ial plants. 

" J the- White Paper also bestows 
official-recognition:on the new 
.truth that- birth, conprol .is hot 
just'a inatrer of_ the increased 
1 . use. of contraceptive devices. It 
Is now accepted .among- students 
of third world problems that an 
increase in' Bring standards and’ 

■ in,- personal economic security 

are prerequisites - of successful 
family planning programmes. In. 
the poorest communities, safety 
is still seen to-lie in numbers of 
children.- - 

T^e'strategy of the new White 
Paper will have a- better chance 
-of success by reason of changes 
in (he countries. Which" harbour 

■ most-of the poverty ;it aims to 
alleviate. For some; time _ the 

"heed to concentrate oh agricul-. 
Cure lias become, the accepted, 
priority~in such countries. More 
important in furthering - the' 
effectiveness of aid is the change 
that' has been noted in south 
Asia- and - elsewhere—a drive, 
-against-corruption. Mrs Gandhi’s 
. new regime in India- has pressed 
•it and has been met by a strong' 
response, from public opinion, 
enough,, it would seem, to shame 
many of the worst offenders. Hie 
same advance marks the new 
administration in Bangladesh. If 
such an impetus can be sus¬ 
tained economic aid for the 
poorest may finally, reach them.

that of allowing excessive tax

Preservation of the 
Oxford Union 

. From Mr Harold Macmillan, FRS 
; Sir. As Chancellor of Oxford Uni¬ 
versity and Chairman of the Oxford 
literary and Debating Union Trust, 
I venture on behalf of my co- 
trustees, Lord Hailsham. of St Mary- 
lebene, Lord Redcliffe-Maud, Mr 
Roy. Jenkins, MP, and Mr Robin 
Day, to make an appeal for this 
Trust whose purpose is to preserve 
the Oxford Union. 

"... The ; Oxford Union is a unique 
institution which has played a vital 
role in British political life for over 
' 150 years. Its preservation is of 
"special value at a time when this 
- country's tradition of civilized and 
good-humoured' debate in the Par¬ 
liamentary manner needs more than 
ever io .be upheld amongst young 
'people in .our universities. The 
union Debate on Europe which was 
-televised -earlier this year was seen 
by a vast audience as an impressive 
example of the Union’s continuing 
value.. 

.-Unfortunately, id spite of the fact 
-that the Union’s membership has 
greatly increased it finds itself 
-under a load of debt and the neces¬ 
sity of refurbishing its buildings, 
particularly the historic debating 
hall and libraries; ir is also neces¬ 
sary to -provide the admirable staff 
with a proper pension fund. 

On behalf of my co-trustees and 
the many patrons whose names will 
be found in the appeal brochure 
which we are issuing today, I would 
like-to commend the safeguarding 
of this vital part of our national 
tradition both to the 60,000 life 
members of the Oxford Union and 
to. all others interested in its pre- 
servaudn. 

Tbis appeal is not only to present 
and immediately past Oxonians ac 
home box to Oxford men in all 
countries, including Rhodes Scholars 
in the* United States, Canada, Aus¬ 
tralia and South Africa. I ask for 
a response which will enable the 
Oxford Union to survive and 
flourish as an essential pert of the 
University's life:

One great merit of owner- 
occupation is its flexibility. At 
different stages of life one can 
move to give elbow-room to one’s 
growing family, or to be near a 
new job in a different part of 
the country. Too many writers 
on housing in the public and 
private sectors neglect this vir¬ 
tue. In its welcome for experi¬ 
ments with new methods of 
tenure and its strong disapproval 
forthe destruction of the private 
rented sector, the Housing Centre 
shows that'it is aware of the 
importance" of variety and ease 
of movement. But it does not 


indicate- what funds tbis change ; ; sufficiently examine the question 


might make available for other 
uses. Its effect on the market

difference,was great enough to 


whether the advantages of the

that it might entail.

The question that will be asked 
is whether this institution 
deserves public support. It has 
many things against it. We live 
in a gloomy age'and the Oxford 
Union has never been a gloomy 
institution. We live in an age 
when personal eloquence is sus¬ 
pect; and. the chief purpose of 
the Oxford Union is to train 
people in personal eloquence. 
The Oxford Union puts young 
men on show and still seems 
more "under the influence of Lord 
Birkenhead than of Gladstone. 
It is political, and politics is not 
in fashion. When the Oxford 
Union comes to ask for funds 
there are more sound contem¬ 
porary excuses than can usually 
be found for buttoning our 
pockets. 

Yet the Oxford Union should 
be supported and generously—

always favourable to the advertiser. 
We are told for example—sometimes 
in great detail—tbar the advertiser’s

. "of A, B, C and D, that tbeir fuel 
consumption is lower, that they .in- 
corporate safety measures which 
none of A; B, C or 0’s cars possess 
and that on their resale a higher 
selling price can .be obtained than 
from these other cars. This.is one - 
-respect-in which British firms are 
plated at a disadvantage: they can¬ 
not . use similar “ comparative 
propaganda 1 ? in' the press of the 
foreign importers’ own country, in _ 
order to extend the export of tbeir 
products, to the competitors’ 
country. - • 

In; many, if not in most, western 
European- countries such compara¬ 
tive. propaganda is considered as 
illegaL. Newspapers or other journals 
- would not accept advertisements of 
this 1 type. In France, Germany and 
Italy-—to .mention only three of the 
member states-of the EEC-Com¬ 
parative propaganda of the type in 
question is treated as a form or 
unfair competition, and conse- 
quently forbidden. 

This prohibition is believed to be 
justified because every procfu« 
possesses features that may be ad¬ 
vantageous and others that may oe 
less so. Comparative propaganda 
stresses only'toe former and under 
the cover .of what is made to appear 
as a wholly objective picture gives, 
in .fact one that may be grossly 
biased. The courts in ail ■■ 

countries have -therefore held tfiat 
comparative propaganda is unlawful. 
This is so even ff all the facts set 
out in the advertisements are en¬ 
tirely true- 

The French and Italian courts 
consider it—even in this rase—as 
a form of denigration of the com-. 


of the ordinary undergraduates 
who will learn there toe inestim¬ 
able advantage of being able to 
speak in public with a reasonable 
degree of confidence, with suffi¬ 
cient lucidity and with some 
power to persuade. In the prac¬ 
tical business of life, in teaching, 
in the law courts, in committees, 
in board rooms,- in making busi¬ 
ness sales as well as in toe more 
exotic worlds of television or toe 
House of Commons, a good com¬ 
mand of spoken English is of 
more value-than many a first- 
class honours degree. That this 
important subject has been 
taught with brilliant success by 
undergraduates to under¬ 
graduates, without recourse to 
professors of speech or toe Uni¬ 
versity Grants Committee, is 
something from which British 
life has greatly benefited. A few 
pounds given to reestablish toe 
Oxford Union financially may 
well do more for toe advance¬ 
ment of British education than 
much larger sums spent in other 
ways. 

peri tor, which cannot be permitted 
by law. Tbis prohibition of compara¬ 
tive propaganda is not a new devel¬ 
opment. Nor has it required legis¬ 
lative action: the courts have in 
these three countries deduced the 
nile during the -course of the last 
30 to 40 years from the general 
principles of law on unfair compe¬ 
tition. 

It .applies, of course, generally: 
French- firms are permitted to 
advertise comparative propaganda in 
France for the sake of competition 
with French firms as little as when 
competing. with German, British or 
Japanese firms. 

English .courts may not possess 
toe same freedom of action. If so, 
woold it not be imperative that steps 
should be taken without delay to 
stop practices which over most of 
western Europe are _ considered as 
unfair and which .in view of the legal 
position in' the major European 
countries work to the 'advantage of 
the importers of foreign goods into 
Britain, while placing the exporters 
of British goods at a disadvantage ?

From Lady Macleod of Boroe

There is not a word of truth in

both I and toe doctors could 
possibly have allowed my busband

The fabrication of this story and 
toe fact that a public figure should 
print it without taking any steps 
to check toe facts is completely 
irresponsible and painful to his

Prison control units 

From Lord Brockway 
Sir, May I refer to two subjects 
discussed in your correspondence 
columns on Friday (October 24) ? 

The first was raised by Dr 
Malcolm Lader and other influen¬ 
tial psychologists in their letter on 
prison control units. I am appalled 
by toe solitary confinement for 
90 days imposed upon “ trouble 
makers” in prison. I was confined 
to solitary confinement for eight 
months in 1918 to 1919 and I have 
little doubt it would have made me 
insane except that De Valera and 
his fellow detainees smuggled news¬ 
papers io me. 

This links up with toe second 
subject on conscientious objectors 
discussed by Kenneth Mellanby. It 
is impossible for any libertarian to 
I accept toe. limitation of toe Con¬ 
science Clause in the Government’s 
Industrial Relations Act to religious 
I objectors. I took toe test case ia 
, toe First World War and gained 
acceptance of the view that con¬ 
science could be motivated by other 
I convictions than religion. We have 
retreated now in the restriction 
accepted. 

I must add a confession. In toe 
House of Lords by mistake I voted 
against toe Liberal amendment

My conscience has been troubled

Eye tests on kittens 

From Mrs Coralie D. Bell 
Sir. My live grandson of 9 months 
who had a squint, had his eyes 
manipulated, possibly rotated, a 
few weeks ago, and the result is 
magical, and caused him little pain. 
Now he has oo squint and will 
soon be perfectly normal. 

1 wonder if toe members of the 
Anti-Vivisection Society, who com¬ 
plain about experiments on the eyes 
of kittens, would do so if they had* 
babies who had benefited so 
wonderfully from toe brilliance of 
surgeons who have learnt so much 
from similar experiments ? Would 
they have these experiments carried 
out on the eyes of tbeir children 
and grand chi] area ? 

Personally, I am deeply grateful 

to Dr- Blakemore and the kittens.

University elitism 

From Professor Jerome Bruner 
Sir. Mr Peter Scott (October 21) 
suggests that toe financial im¬ 
poverishment of British universities 
might be remedied by a “pecking 
order ” based on “ excellence . 
Scarce resources would be allocated 
in salaries and grants according to 
institutional excellence: "Oxford. 
Cambridge, Edinburgh ..." to cor¬ 
respond - to “ Harvard, Berkeley^., 
MIT, Stanford ..." in the United 
States. “The American pecking 
order”, he states, “is decided by 
toe collective judgment of toose in 
higher education not by civil ser¬ 
vants. . . .” 

I am now entering my fourto'year 
of teaching at Oxford after more 
than 20 at Harvard. From that 
vantage point, Mr Scott’s argument 
seems not only wrong, but altogether 
out of toe spirit that animates 
British university life. For one 
thing, toe American “ pecking 
order” is based not upon academic 
consensus but upon marker forces. 
It is a. “star system " in which, in 
many institutions, salary is deter¬ 
mined by toe offers a lecturer gets 
from elsewhere.^ Salaries ..are 
adjusted by bargaining power, and 
that in turn may vary widely _bv 
virtue of toe sub-speciality in which 
a scholar happens to be working. 
If pbysics is all the rage in terms 
of the competition for staff, phy¬ 
sicists will get more, classicists less. 
(Harvard is a striking exception to 
this rule though always in peril.) 

Mr Scott laments that in these

Zionism and the UN 

From Mr George Mandel_ 

Sir, According to Mr C. J. Walker 
the central point at issue about 
Zionism is that it is not a 
“ universalizable political philo¬ 
sophy” (letter, October 25). Those 
who condemned it recently at the 
United Natiods claim to believe in 
the right of nations to self-deter¬ 
mination. Can this be railed a 
“ universalizable 'philosophy ** if. as 
is apparently the case, the Jews 
have to be excluded ?

From Mr Sidney L. Shipton 
Sir, Mr Bernard Levin, I am sure, 
does nar need to be defended 
against Mr Christopher Mayhew’s 
strictures by anyone, but bis letter 
(October 27) certainly seems 
extremely odd, particularly as be 
skilfully sidesteps the major 
issues, out then perhaps he is guilty 
oF Bulgarian humbug rather than 
Mr Levin. It would be futile to 
repeat in detail Mr Levin’s article 
entitled H Indecent spectacle of 
tyrants condemning tyranny at the 
United Nations The article gives 
chapter and verse in detail wbich 
Mr Mayhew does not even attempt 
ro respond to (possibly because 
there is no response possible). Per¬ 
haps one could quote The New York 
Times Editorial headed “Cynical 
diplomacy ” in which it is suggested 
that one “should listen well to the 
critical arguments of Barbados, or 
Sierra Leone or Zambia, countries 
where sensitivities tD true racism 
are only insulted by the false com¬ 
parison with the political ideology 
of Zionism”.

pander to ils narrow ephemeral in¬ 
terests as if there were no tomorrow. 
It is now essential, economically as 
well as politically; that tbe regions 
of toe United Kingdom should have 
their own democratic institutions 
to articulate their own individual 
circumstances. 

If this right, against all historical 
precedent, is not generously con¬ 
ceded by Westminster and White¬ 
hall, then it will be taken. For 
there is little but cynicism left for 
our lauded political system when it 
is seen in practice to result io tbe 
retention of an electoral system 
that is manifestly undemocratic; an 
economic imbalance that is at vari¬ 
ance with reality; and a concentra¬ 
tion of political power in so few 
hands that they cannot properly 
use it. and in consequence entrust 
the interprarction of their will, and 
the fortunes of millions, to insulated 
bureaucrats.

From Mr Terence Bishop 
Sir, The debate cm the allocation 
of the executive and legislative 
functions of government must not 
be concerned only with toe devolu¬ 
tion of power to regional assem¬ 
blies. The Prime Minister has an¬ 
nounced thar toe White Paper on 
devolution will be introduced witbin 
the next few weeks. Tbis will be 
followed soon after by toe publica¬ 
tion of the Tindemans report on 
toe present state and future deve¬ 
lopment of the European Commu¬ 
nity. Tindemans will certairTjy 
examine toe role of the European 
Parliament and will most probably 
include recommendations on the 
strengthening of tbe processes ot 
democratic control throuen the in¬ 
crease of powers to the Parliament 
and toe speedy introduction ot 
direct elections. 

Almost by chance, therefore, the 
Westminster Parliament will be 
faced with the need to examine 
proposals concerning the future pat¬ 
tern of government within the 
United Kingdom at tbe same time 
as it will be called upon to discuss 
a major reappraisal of the struc¬ 
ture of the European Community. 
The outcome is certain to be a sig¬ 
nificant devolution to lower levels 
of government and the assignment 
or transfer of some powers .to a 
European level. May we hope that 
toe discussions will be thorough and 
interrelated and that toe final deci¬ 
sions are coherent and put in ac¬ 
ceptable form to toe people. 

Singly the reports have major 
constitutional significance, together 
they ran provide an. unprecedented 
blueprint for toe future of demo¬ 
cracy in this country.

new fields are ignored and the 
established ones sustained. In toe 
American system, market forces are 
such that “popular” fields are 
nourished to the detriment of toe 
less glamorous if more solid enter¬ 
prises. Are “Black Studies” and 
“ The Women’s Movement ” that 
much more important than classics 
to have warranted tbe cosseting of 
the former and tbe neglect of tbe 
latter in America? And does Mr 
;;Scott _reg]ly believe that “Washing- 
~torTbureaucrats ” and the power of 
the public purse were not crucial 
in the decision to support one but 
not the otber ? 

Academic standards vary far 
less from prestigious university to 
ordinary provincial, here in Britain 
toon in America. And that is thanks 
to the admirable stabilizer of the 
UGC. There is already a de facto 
research grant discrimination in 
favour of the great centers:, those 
who have will indeed be given. 
Fortunately it is hot reflected..in 
salaries or grants to students in any 
significant way. 

Personally. I find _ it altogether 
more congenial to be in a university 
system free of salary bickering and 
- bargaining. That spirit is essential

Britain does not need more of and 
what its universities need less of is

October 27. 

From Mr R. G. Collins 
Sir, No doubt most of us, including 
the Government, would join Miss 
Iris Murdoch- -and condemn tbe 
“ racist ” castigations of Third World . 
majorities in the United Nations 
against Zionism. And yet I wonder 
what kind of supnort Israel can 
really expect to find bere in Britain 
these days. 

Multi-million pound trade deals 
with Arab nations proliferate, so 
tnomenrarijy we recapture our 
vision of a reflated economy and 
even a healthy balance of trade. But 
when the next round of rhe Arab 
Israeli conflict begins, wbar will the 
implications of all tbis be ? 

Is there any doubt which way thr 
present Government would turn ? 
Presumably the silent majority of 
our economically self-interested 
electorate would lend tacit approval 
to the pro-Arab' stance of dumb 
neutrality. 

We have yet to see bow mighty 
in its effects is the “ oil weapon 
Yours faithfully,

Lords decision on- 
law of rape 

From Professor GUmvUIe Williams, 
QC 

Sir, Lord Charley (October 24) sup¬ 
poses chat tbe rase in which Miss 
Huey was the complaining wimtesS 
turned on toe man’s mistaken belief 
in consent. Since this case is being 
used in an attempt to discredit the 
decision of iHa House of Lord s to 
Morgan, it is important to say that, 
according to my information, it 
turned on rhe much commoner 
issue of actual consent, and there¬ 
fore, as I fp rid in my previous letter, 
toe decision of toe Lords had noto- 
ing to do with it. 

There is now a tendency to sup¬ 
pose chat any acquittal in a rape 
case is a consequence of toe rule 
laid down by toe Lords. But there 
always bas been a hig h proportion 
of acquittals on this charge. The 
Cambridge study published in 1957 
found to at in toe sample studied 
47 per cent of the men charged, 
with rape were acquitted. Nor must 
it be supposed that these acquittals 
are generally unreasonable. When 
one calks to toose professionally 
concerned in a rape case resulting 
in an acquittal, the opinion almost 
invariably expressed is that ibe 
acquittal was right on toe facts, 
proved. 

It is a misapprehension to say, 
as Lord Cborley does, that the deci¬ 
sion in Morgan changed toe law. 
Before ix there was no appellate- 
pronouncement in this country- on 
whether toe man’s mistaken belief 
in consent had to be reasonable.. No 
doubt some judges directed juries 
that it had ro be. But I doubt that! 
the practice was common; other¬ 
wise there would have been an 
apnead before now. 

Tbe judges and practitioners 
with whom I have spoken say that 
toe regular practice was to ask the 
jury three questions: Did the man 
have sexual intercourse with toe 
complainant ? If yes, did she Con¬ 
sent? If she did not, did he know 
this ? This is the direction approved 
in Morgan. No one has shown that 
any failure of justice has resulted 
from k. 

It is misleading to the general 
public to say simply that Morgan’s 
case derides that the unreasonable¬ 
ness of toe man’s belief in ccnsfiat 
is irrelevant. 

(lj Tbe House of Lords empha¬ 
sised that the man is guilty not only 
if be knows that toe woman is not 
consenting but also if he realises 
tbe possibility that she is not and 
takes no steps to ascertain toe 
truth, as be could easily do; this 
point had not been established 
before. 

(2) It is open to toe judge to 
tell toe jury that they can take too 
unreasonableness- of toe alleged 
belief into account in deciding 
whether it was in fact held. 

(3) Tbe law is toat if toe man 
knows that the woman is acting 
under intimidation, he automatic¬ 
ally knows toat she does not 
consent. 

(4) Where, as was alleged in 
Morgan’s case, a third party (such 
as the woman’s busband) has prac¬ 
tised a fraud on toe m an, making 
him believe toat the woman was 
consenting when in fact she tvas 
intimidated, the third party can, 
according to a later decision of the 
Court of Appeal, be convicted as 
accessory to rape even though the 
man is acquitted, so toe situation 
will- not go without legal redress: 
the real culprit wiU be punished, 
while toe man whom toe jury have 
found to be morally innocent \vill 
go free. Da the critics of Morgan 
really want innocent men to be 
punished ?

Nationalized industry 

From Mr Yorick Blumenfeld 1 
Sir, It seems rather extraordinary 
toat when the Chancellor of toe 
Exchequer is urging British industry 
to become orientated towards high 
output 3nd rapid turnover, the 
nationalized industries should -.be 
following toe opposite course. 
British Rail, For example, keeps" on 
pushiag up its prices, even though 
it is losing passengers in toe pro¬ 
cess. Tbe idea is to make less of 
a loss on reduced services ard 
higher prices. Is not It time the 
nationalized industries took heed of 
the Chancellor’s advice ? 

Sincerely yours.

Payment of pensions 

From Mr C. M. Bartow 
Sir, I am even more puzzled than 
Mr Porges (October 23), for I 
receive pensions from two govern¬ 
ment. offices. The first says that it 
cannot make payments direct to a 
bank; toe second finds do difficulty 
ia doing so, and toe regular arrival 
of that second pension is notified 
to me by my bank by means of toe 
equivalent of a dividend counterfoil. 
The system works admirably. 

Yours faithfully,

Keeping tinned food 

From Mr Oliver Smedley 
Sir, Last year I went to Salt Lake 
City to find out what the greatest 
of all the survivors, namely the 
Mormons, were doing about stor¬ 
ing food. I found that they had 
perfected methods of keeping com¬ 
plete diets in dehydrated form in 
nirrovac tins, with a shelf life of 
20 years or more. 

I believe tbese products are now 
available in London and in view 
of the rate at which food prices 
are now rising might be considered 
one of the best of all long-term 
anti-inflation hedges. 

Your? faithfully, 

OLIVER SMEDLEY. Chairman

Film presents 1975 image 
of Royal British Legion 


By Robert Parker 
The Royal British Legion is 
anxious to show that It is as much 
concerned witb the troops in 
Northern Ireland today as with 
old soldiers exchanging stories of 
the First World War. 

Its £20,000 film, narrated by the 
Prince of Wales, was given a press 
preview yesterday. It will he 
screened on independent television 
on November 9, to coincide with 
the Poppy Day appeal. 

The legion hopes it will help to 
raise money and bring in new, 
younger recruits. 

General Sir Charles Jones, presi¬ 
dent of the organization, said 
yesterday that it was deeply in¬ 
volved with the soldiers who were 
victims of the Northern Ireland 
troubles and their dependants. 

“ We are trying to get away 
from the flag-waving image which 
is symbolized by the poppy ", Sir 
Charles said. “ We want to show 
that the Royal British Legion, is 
as relevant today as it has ever 
been.” 


The film. One dap in November , 
showed how the youth of today 
were involved in legion activities, 
helping to cany on the tradition 
of service. Sir Charles said. 

Most people, he added, regarded 
the legion in the same way as the 
Prince of Wales confesses to in 
the film. Before he did some 
research he thought they were 
something to do with Old Con- 
tematibles. 

Many examples of the legion’s 
work arc given. It Is the biggest 
private employer of disabled 
labour; it is one of the biggest 
private housing associations in 
the country; its taxi school has 
trained almost a third of London 
cab drivers. 

Last year the legion was in¬ 
volved in more than 59,000 nego¬ 
tiations for grants and pensions. 
It has also taken uo cases oF 
soldiers so badly injured bv 
bombs that they have had to be 
discharged 

The legion needs to raise at 
least E2.Sm to cover its costs be¬ 
cause of inflation.

The night sky in November 


By Our Astronomical

Mercury is too near the Sun for 
observation this month and will 
be in superior conjunction on the 
23th. 

Venus is prominent in the 
morning skv. reaching its great¬ 
est elongation of 47" on the 7th. 
at distance of 102 million km 
(64 million mile*). It moves 
through Virgo during the month 
and on the 29ih will pass Spica 
and be passed by the Muon. 

Mars is stationary on the 6rh 
and then begins its retrograde 
-motion, but it* movement among 
the stars this month will be small. 
Moon near it on the 21st. 

Jupiter is nn» an evening star 
hut is prominently risible for 
tunst of the night. Muon near it 
un the 15th. 

Saturn is still classified as a 
morning star but rises soon after 
21h at the beginning nf rhe month. 
It will be stationjrs on the 13th 
and the Moon will be near it on 
the nigbt 23-24th. 

Uranus and Neptune are morn¬ 
ing and evening objects respect¬ 
ively. hut both arc too near the 
Sun for observation.

last quarter. 26dU7h. 

Eclipses ; The Partial eclipse of 
the Sun un the 3rd is not visible 
from Europe, but only from the 
far south of the Earth. The 
rmal eclipse of the Muon on the 
ISiii is visible from Europe : the 
Moon enters the umbra at 20h29m. 
in mid-eclipse at 22h24m. and 
loaves the umbra ac 24hU9m. 

Algol : approximate times i«f 
evening minima are KdJJh,

November is associated with the 
nnce-famous Le>>nid meteors, due 
13th to !9th with a maximum no 
the 18lh. A largo number is nut 
expected and there will he strong 
moonlight, so it is hardly worm

which is a convenient time for 
observation. 

Venus Is about to reach us wes¬

about the geometry of the Sun-

that at this time Venus as seen

half illuminated. We can rake it

Jewelry: Finds indicate 
Anglo-Saxon wealth 


A collection of Anglo-Saxon jew¬ 
elry nearly 1,300 years old, exca¬ 
vated a few weeks ago. may well 
have been the products of a single 
craftsman or*workshop, supplying 
a whole community with its finery. 
It consists mainly of cruciform 
brooches, of gilt bronze with 
designs cast in relief. 

The discoveries were made dur¬ 
ing the second season of excava¬ 
tion on tbe site oF an Anglo-Saxon 
cemetery found during the con¬ 
struction of a car park beside the 
new reservoir at Empingham, Lei¬ 
cestershire. The sue is a notable 
addition to the series of pagan 
Saznn burial grounds In the east 
Midlands, and will provide an im¬ 
portant key to earlier, more hap¬ 
hazard. collections of finds from 
the region. 

This year’s work was directed by 
Mr Nicholas Reynolds, of Cam¬ 
bridge University, on behalf of the 
Department of the Environment 
and the Anglia Water Authority, It 
came after work begun by Mr S. 
Gorin, of.Newark Technical Col¬ 
lege. 

A total of 132 graves had been 
laid nut along the depression 
formed by a hollow land, probably 
in use In the Roman period, and 
among a complex of silted-up Iron 
Age ditches. The layout of the 
graves appeared to be largely ran¬ 
dom. and all were comparatively 
shallow. No grave cut into another, 
indicating tile* their positions were 
marked in some wav; indeed, ft has 
been possible to suggest, from the 
evidence ot the skeletons, that, 
although there were no coffins, the 
graves were covered over rather 
than immediately backfilled. 

The wealth of the population was 
indicated by the large amount of 
metalwork buried with the dead, 
including spear* and shields, 
bronze-bound buckets, and a parti¬ 
cularly fine collection of gilt 
brome cruciform brooches. These 
indicate a late dare for the burials, 
either at the end of the sixth or 
early in the seventh century AD. 

The period of use of the ceme- 



One of the brooches found at 
Empingham. 

tcry appears to have been short, 
and there is some evidence to sug¬ 
gest that much nf die metalwork 
was made by one craftsman, or at 
least in one workshop. A high 
proportion of the dead were 
adolescents, though many of tbe 
adults lived well inro middle age, 
and some skeletons displayed in¬ 
teresting and distinctive 'genetic 
features, which will repav further 

study in the laboratory. Of partic¬ 
ular interest will be any familial 
links discernible from rhe skeletal 
morphology, an archaeological 
field pioneered by recent work in 
Mexico and Belize.

OBITUARY 

SIR ALFRED OWEN 
An industrial individualist 


Sir Alfred Owen, CBE, died 

yesterday ar the age of 67. 

He was chairman and man¬ 
aging director 1 of the Owen 
Organisation, the largest family 
business in the country with a 
turnover of £l00m a year. In 
addition to the engineering £om- 
rylejc at Darlas ton, Stafford¬ 
shire, the firm has factories in 
Yorkshire and Scotland and 
subsidiaries in Australia and 
South Africa. 

Owen was a highly individual 
industrialist. A fervent and 
articulate Christian, he firmly 
believed that to be a good 
Christian one did not have to 
be a bad businessman. He came 
of a family of Midland iron¬ 
masters and took control ot 
the family firm when his father, 
Ernest Owen, who had shrewdly 
geared tbe firm’s products to 
serve, in turn, the bicycle, car 
and aviation industries, died in 
1930. A. G. B. Owen was then 
s till up at Cambridge. In the 
years that followed he extended 
and developed the business 
organization he had inherited 
but in the expansion bis 
Christian principles were not 
discarded. Paternalism in indus¬ 
try may not be fashionable, hut 
tris strongest critics could not 
deny that he was always closely 
involved in schemes for the 
well-being of his employees. 

Owen had a strong sense of 
social obligation. For some 
years he was chairman of 
Staffordshire County Council 
and of Darlaston UDC; be was 
a former president of the 
National Sunday School Union ; 
chairman of the council of Dr 
Barnardo’s Homes ; a vice-chair¬ 
man of the National Savings 
Movement; Pro-Vice-Chancellor 
of Keele University (which 
made him an honorary DSc) 
and a member ot the council 
ol Birmingham University. 
Though an Anglican he was 
willing to support die work of 
other Christian denominations. 
He was an early supporter in 
England of Billy Graham. On 
most Sundays he could be found 
preaching, taking a service or 
helping with a Bible class. 

Owen was one of the first 
businessmen to promise assist¬ 
ance when Mr Raymond Mayes 
conceived 4 plan to raise 


finance to build a British granfl 
pm racing car in 1945, aad i*a, 
eventually destined to play ti* 
leading parr in die gRlt 
(British Racing Motors) project 
Although the firsi BRM 
deraonsinued to The press and 
notabilities of the mororiuz 
world at Bourne in 1949 and th* 
British Motor Racing Research 
Trust was later formed, the aew 
car met severe financial aatf 
Technical troubles. Its few sue! 
cesses came too late and at th* 
end of 1952 the BRM 
decided to wind up and sell ih e 
assets of the company. 

But Owen had not lost hii 
initial faith in the BRM project, 
He purchased the company and 
from then on BRM became r 
division of the parent compaiw 
in Owen Organisation, stgj 
located at Bourne, Linco lns hire. 
If was typical of Owen that he 
refused to change the name 0 ? 
the cars to “ Owens ” and wag 
confident that the -Previous had 
image would be wiped out ] n 
spite of many setbacks, Owen 
never gave uo and it was in 
1959 that The Swedish driver. j 0 
Bonnier, gave a BRM its first 
major victory by winning the 
Dutch Grand Prix. Three years 
Inter Owen was present when 
G-?ham Hill von the Snnrij 
African Grand Prix in a BRM. 
securing the 1962 drivers’ world 
championship and the manu¬ 
facturers’ cup as well. 

H:« efforts a'*r> brought h : tn 
the Ferodo Gold Trophy and n 
British Automobile Raring Clnb 
gold medal. 

Owen was also _ closed 
involved in the building of 

Donald Campbell’s car Bluebird 
and in Campbell's ultimately 
succes. r i f ul attempt ro beat ie 
world’s land speed record. 

From 1965 to 19 ( '7 he wat 
chairmen of the Nation?! Road 
Safctv Advisory Council. He was 
appointed a Dcnuty 1 5 «*istcnant 
for Warwickshire in 1957. 

Rnrrt on Ap' :i 8. its 

educated at Licfccy HjU«i pr 0 . 
naratory school and Gurdit* 
before going un to Emmanuel 
College. Cambridge. He married 
i’i 19J2 F.ilpfT, Kathleen 
Genevieve Mr Mu Han by whom 
be bad three sons and twn 
daughters. He w? annninred a 
CBE in 1954 and knighted in 
1961. 


MR M. J. FARRELL 


Mr M. J. Farrell, an economist 
of rare distinction, died sud¬ 
denly on October 27 at the age 
of 49. Be was born in 1926 and 
had his university education at 
New College, Oxford, where he 
took a First in PPE. He went 
to Cambridge in 1949 to work 
with Stone in the Department of 
Applied Economics. He was 
elected a Fellow of Gonvillc and 
Caius and at his death was 
Reader in Economics in the 
University of Cambridge. He 
had been editor of the Review 
of Economic Studies, the main 
British journal of economic 
theory and he was a Fellow of 
the Econometric Society. 

Farrell belonged to that small 
group oE people in a subject of 
whom it can be said, that they 
had written a number of 
“ classic ” papers. Jn- the most 
famous of these he found a way 
in which increasing returns to 
scale (and non-convexities in 
general), could sometimes be 
assimilated by traditional theory 
and he precisely pinpointed 
those cases where this could not- 
be done. This paper stimulated 
a great deal of fruitful work. 
Almost equally famous is his 
work on the British coal indus¬ 
try in the course of which he 
made a fundamental contribu¬ 
tion to the statistical measure¬ 
ment and comparison of produc¬ 
tivity. 


These two papers arc known 
and cited wherever economics 
is studied. But there were 
many other outstanding contri¬ 
butions. He was one ol rhe first 
to integrate the then new 
method of Linear Programming 
into the theory of tbe firm. He 
v/as in ihe forefront in the 
rigorous study of economic 
selection processes. His last 
paper was devoted to a vexing 
and difficult problem in the 
theory of social choice. Nothing 
that he pur his hand to was 
second rate. His fastidious and 
clear mind took hold of the 
essentials nf a problem and pro- 
vided elegant and fundamen¬ 
tally simple solutions. His repu¬ 
tation, if anything, is likelv to 
grow*, especially in England, as 
more economists come to be 
trained to precise modes of 
thinking. 

Farrell had polio in 1937 and 
from then on walked on 
crutches. His disability was 
carried gracefully and without 
complaint. It did not dim his 
enthusiasm or limit his many 
activities. These included an 
important role in his colleee, 
where he was Registrar of the 
Council for manv years, and in 
the Faculty of Economics. He 
will be greatly missed in both 
places. Farrell leaves behind 
his wife Margaret and five sons. 


MR JOHN TICEHURST 


Mr Michael Howard writes: 

Harpsichord lovers ond all 
lovers of early keyboard music 
will be saddened to learn of the 
recent and tragic death in a 
road accidenc at Tenterden, of 
John Ti ceftursr, a persuasive 
pioneer among those who sought 
to reestablish the harpsichord 
as a serious musical instrument 
at a time when it was considered 
to be more or less obsolete and 
unacceptable, even among rhe 
most musically inclined. 

John Venables Ticchurst was 
born in 1895. the youngest son 
of Dr and Mrs A. R. Ticchurst 
of St Leonards. Tbe Ticeburst 
family had been doctors in 
Hastings for several generations, 
moving to High Halden in 19GS. 
Thus began a long association 
of the Ticeburst family with die 
neighbouring parish o! Tenter- 
dcn. 

John : was educated at Ton- 
bridge School, leaving there in 
1913 to begin his articles as a 
chartered accnunrant. Jn 1914 
he volunteered for the Army, 
joining the 16th Battalion of 
the Middlesex Regiment and 
serving continuously in Flan¬ 
ders from 1915 to 1918. Com- 
missioned into the Royal West 
Kent Regiment, he was awarded 
the MC in 1918 when serving as 
Battalion Signals Officer. 

As a postwar Chartered 
Accountant. John found that 
city life was not really to his 
liking. In 1925 he became a 


student at the Royal Academy 
of Mus’c and it was here, 
through his association with Mrs 
Violet Gordon Wondhnuse, that 
he began tn take a serious 
interest in the harpsichord and 
its repertoire, eventually to 
become one of the country's 
foremost harpsichordists. An 
accident to his right hand in 
1952 rermhiared this career, but 
onlv after many engagement 
with the BBC" and recitals 
throughout the continent and 
in Australia. He played on a 
two-manual instrument built hv 
Jacob and Abraham Kirkman in 
3733 and he performed with 
such other distinguished musi¬ 
cians as Andre Mangeot, Leon 
Goossens, Ambrose Gauntlert 
and Francesca Palmer. He wrs 
also associated for several years 
with incidental music for ths 
Ellen Terry Memorial Perform¬ 
ances ar the Barn Theatre, 
Smallbythe. 

Since iha 1952 accident, John 
maintained hiv musical activities 
notably with the Tenterden 
Choral Society as well as con¬ 
tributing to a wide variety nr 
local interests and indulging h s 
keen knowledge as a gardener. 

In 1922 he had married 
Eircne Pcrcival Smith, die 
daughter of a one time Vicar of 
Roivenden. She died in 1951. Ey 
her he leaves two daughters ami 
one son. He had recently Cele¬ 
brated his eightieth birthday.

On me other hand, Mr Hughes’s 
solicitor’s argument that me 
validity of the sublease or of me 
headlease as conferring title was 
for the justices to decide was also 
incorrect. 

Xu me exercise of their Jurisdic¬ 
tion to grant or renew club reels- 
strati on under Fart II of the Act, 
the justices were concerned with 
the question of actual control of 
the premises to be registered, with 
the bona fldes of the club and with 
ensuring tiiat the restrictions 
imposed on registered clubs were 
complied with. 

Relevant to me justices' inquiry 
was whether or not the dub tad 
in fact such an Interest and were

by Mr Hughes, namely, whether 
such interest and payment of rent 
was supported by a valid document

Xn their Lordships* judgment 
me justices, as appeared from me

There was nothing irregular or

proceedings and the application 
was dismissed.

Psychologists who postulate that 
unmarried women who become 
pregnant have an unconscious 
wish to do so received no support 
from a study of women at Mel¬ 
bourne University by their student 
health service. 

Among s exually active students, 
those who became pregnant were 
mostly those who used unreliable 
contraceptive methods. They did 
not differ from the rest on any 
of a series of psychological 
measures. 

Three groups of women were 
interviewed in (he study : 51 were 
pregnant, 104- were not pregnant 
but were attending the contracep¬ 
tive clinic, and lbl were attend¬ 
ing me general clinic. The lasr 
group included 113 women who 
were sexually experienced and 68 
who were not. In general the 
older students were more likely 
to have had sexual intercourse. 
Sexual experience was also more 
common in more living s way from 
home and those who were without 
any current religious devotion. 

No distinction could be made 
on sociological grounds between 
the JmiaJly experienced .students 
who bad become pregnant and 
those who tad not: there was no 
difference in me proportion from 
broken homes or ln those who 
believed they had been unwanted 
as children or in their academic 
aspirations or achievements. The 
pregnant women bad not started 
sexual activity at an earlier age, 
though they were slightly more 
likely to have had intercourse with 
only one nun than more who 
were not pregnant. 


The striking difference was m 
the form of contraception' used. 
Nearly 80 per cent of the preg¬ 
nant women had relied an the 
rhythm method at some time and 
S3 per cent bad become pregnant- 
while using it- Others had used ' 
unreliable methods such as spermi¬ 
cide creams. Only 14 per cent 
bad used no contraceptive at all 
st the probable time of concep¬ 
tion. 

In contrast, only 29 per cent 
of. the' non-pregnant women had 
ever used the rhythm method and 
59 per cent were using the pDl 
or an intra-ntertoe contraceptive 
device. Poor medical advice was 
blamed for six pregnancies in 
women who had been taken off 
the pH I by their doctors without 
an alternative contraceptive being 
offered. 

There was little evidence thar 
the women who became pregnant 
had done so id satisfy emotional 
needs, the report says. Tbit 
hypothesis assumes that contra¬ 
ceptives are readfiy available ana 
that their use is fully understood. 
In fact it was dear that many 
women unreliable method# 

were unaware that they wefr 
taking risks. Many pregnancttr 
would not have occurred bad tint 
sources consulted, including 
■parents. women's -magazines, 
university lecturers and textbooks*' 
provided adequate, dear and. 
reliable information.

Two novels on short list 


By a Staff Reporter 
The short list for the Booker 
Prize for fiction, Britain’s most 
important literary award, has been 
reduced to two titles this year. 
They are: Gossip from the Forest, 
by Thomas KeneaHy, the* Austral¬ 
ian novelist: and Beat and Dust, 
by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, a 
naturalized Pole who married an 
Indian and lives In Delhi. 

The annual prize of £5,000 is 
open to novels by authors from 
Britain, the Commonwealth, - the 
Irish Republic, and South Africa 
published between January 1 and 
November 26 this year. The 
winner wifi be announced, on 
November 19 by Angus Wilson, 
chairman of this years panel of 
judges. 

Mr Wilson says : “Entry for the 
Booker Prize of 1975. was large. 
Perhaps too large. 'Bor of the 
83 books entered the judges read 
too many that were not of the 
standard set by the decent mass, 
let alone, of the excellent few. 
There were, in compensation, a 
good number of high competence 
m a wide variety of subject and 
forms. Two novel stood oot; 
aud of tiie two the judges dually 
decided that one was more admir¬ 
able than the other.” 

Thomas Keneally’s Gossip from 


the Forest is original in form with¬ 
out being self-consciously expert-' 
mental- It tells the story of the' 
peace negotiations in a railway' 
carriage in the Forest of Conl- 
plfrgne at the end of the First . 
World War. 

Its surface is tiie interplay' of 
personalities: of tiie victors Focli, 
Weygand, the British delegates, 
and Erzberger and the other Ger¬ 
man representatives, rapidly and 
haphazardly chosen to take (be 
burden of surrender for a country 
where authority and order are In 
hourly danger of 'collapse 

Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s Heat 
and Dust tells of two English’ 
women: Olivia* a mem-sahib or 
1923, and her husband’s grand¬ 
daughter, who visits India today 
ostensibly In search of the story 
of Olivia. Both are intensely Eng¬ 
lish,. yet each decided to stay in 
India 

The book conveys, quietly but. 
convincingly, the heeling of India: 
its squalor, its miseries, its 
beauties, its excitement, and the 
enticements jf its paradox. It. is 
a cool and alarmingly restrained 
indictment of what is lacking fn 
the West as Well as a critical com¬ 
mentary combined with a love' 
story of an affair with India.

has made a $33m (£16m) pro- . 
vision against a “ decline in the. 
value of its investments in a

A G & W spokesman in Lon-'

provisions were largely against 
the value of property invest¬ 
ments held by the Hawtin bank-- 
ing and financial services divi^ 
sion, which Gulf & Western- 
acquired from Hawtin Limited! 
earlier this year. The provision 
is struck after tax relief. 

Gulf & Western’s financial , 
services division as a whole.. 
made a loss in the financial; 
year to July 31, reflecting the.

results for the srx months to 30th June 1975 show a net loss of 
£950,000 against a profit of £747,000 in the same period of the 
previous year and a group profit for the full year to 31st December 

1974 of £457,585. A her taxation the group loss for the firstsix 
months amounts to £600,000 against a comparative profit of 
£357,000 and a loss for the full year of £37,416. 

The group’s construction subsidiaries all traded profitably and 
Ernest Ireland (Contractors! Limited and Caffin & Co. Limited 
produced encouraging profits of £450,000. 

The write-down upon commercial and residential development 
and land amounted to £1.05 million and in addition the whole of the 

1975 research and development costs of £165,000 have been 
written off. 

Having made these allowances the Board are optimistic that 
satisfactory figures will be presented in the future. Although unable 
to recommend an interim dividend, an the basis of the anticipated 
results for the second half of the year, his expected that a final 
dividend will be paid. 

When thegrouptooka controlling interest in Weir Co nstruction 
in August 1974, ihe loss for that year exceeded £750.000. During the 
first six months of this year the loss haB been contained at £132,000 
and it is expected that a modest overall profit for the year will be 
recorded. 

Group turnover for this year will be approximately £30 million and 
the forward order position forcontracting in 1976 is satisfactory. 

With our local partners in the United Arab Emirates we have 
secured orders for £9 million of work, at adequate margins, to be 
completed during 1976. 

With profitable construction work in the Middle East 
and an improving situation at Weir Construction! added to 
the activities of the contracting subsidiaries in established 
fields, good prospects are possible for the early return of 
the group to previous continuous profitability.

Support for

By Clifford Webb 

Coventry employers yester¬ 
day welcomed plans by shop 
stewards ro lobby MPs for the 
Government to declare the city 
an assisted area. They were nor 
so happy, however. at the 
srewards 1 plans to restrict over¬ 
time and to oppose redun¬ 
dancies. 

A spokesman for Coventry 
Engineering Empfovers* Asso¬ 
ciation said: "Firms in this 
area are very worried about rhe 
economic situation and high 
local unemployment and they 
will be delighted if the unions 
succeed in bringing govern- 
rt^nt help m Coventry-” At 

the same time, though, em¬ 
ployers were not surprised that 
union members should feel as 
they did about redundancy, 
the’ unions should remember 
that no employer resorted in 
redundancies unless he had no 
alternative. 

The ” crisis measures ” were 
called for by 350 shop stewards'. 
representing most of the city's 
engineering firms, at a special 
meeting on Tuesd.iv 

With rhe area's jobless total 
now approaching 16.000, the 
highest, for 30 years, and a 
further 2.004) redundancies 
expected within weeks, rhe 
stewards are very worried about

Car exports 
| up 19pc 
in value 

By Edward Townsend 
’ British car exporters have 
continued to increase the value 
of their overseas shipments, but 
the latest figures from the 
industry conceal the fact that 
this year there has heen a 
significant fall in the number 
of cars sold abroad. 

The Society of Motor Manu¬ 
facturers and Traders said 
yesterday that in the nine 
months up to the end of 
September car exports were 19 
per cent up on the same period 
of 1974 at f373.4m. 

But the Government’s latest 
overseas trade statistics on 
exports of cars, including those 
assembled and in kit form, 
show that sales in the first 
nine months of this year fell 
to 418.925 vehicles from 435.26" 

On rite import front, the 
SMMT reported that the value 
of foreign car sales over the 
run nine-month periods rose 50 
per cent to £382.2m this year. 

The Government's figures 
reveal a much lower increase 
in terms of volume, the 
number nf foreign cars sold 
rising hv just under 25 per cent 
to 350.213. 

The best success story con¬ 
tained in the SMMT figures is 
on commercial vehicles. Lorry 
exports in September were 100 
per cent up on the same month 
of ?a*t year at £30.5m. 

Total motor product exports 
in rhe first nine months were 
up 41 per cent at 11.897.9m

THE TIMES THURSDAY OCTOBER 30 1975 

Former Lloyds man 
claims currency deals 
could have made £llm 


Lugano, Oct 29.—A former 
foreign exchange dealer accused 
of losing Lloyds Bank Inter¬ 
national £32m through un¬ 
authorized currency dealings 
here said today that the loss 
would have been an Him 
profit if Lloyds had kept his 
accounts open. 

Mr Marc Colombo, faring a 
maximum of five years in 
prison on several charges in¬ 
cluding fraud, told a court that 
last December the loss would 
have been only one-fifth of the 
eventual amouat if Lloyds 
International had not closed 
bis open positions in ics Lugano 
branch after discorering . the 

losses in August, 1974. 

By January this year his 
dealings would have been show¬ 
ing a 3Sm Swiss franc labour 
£7m) profit and by February 
a film franc profit, he said. 

According to the indictment, 
Lloyds, which covered the 
losses from its owu profits, 
found the branch had com¬ 
mitted itself to buy S592m. 
DM844m and 6m Swiss francs, 
without corresponding sales to 
cover the purchase*. 

Mr Paolo Bernascom. rbe 
prosecutor, said the charges 
were not for having lost money 
on the dealings but for specu¬ 
lating without keeping to the 
limits and regulations. 

Mr Cnlombo. 29, the former 
Lloyds foreign exchange 
director at Lugano, and Mr 
Egidio MombeUi. 41. the former 


branch manager are charged 
with some 20 offences. 

Mr Colombo appealed to 
Lugano’s criminal court today 
—the third day of the pial— 
to be allowed t*> remain free if 
found guilty until his wife has- 
given birth to their- first cbiJd, 

He said his six months oF 
detention following the dis¬ 
covert' of the currency losses 
were "particularly hard on his 
wife. He was released on bail 
last February. 

Mr Colombo, who has been 
under arrest again since the 
trial opened on Monday, said 
he hoped to find another job in 
the banking or foreign exchange 
field. 

Mr MombeUi has maintained 
throughout the trial that he was 
unaware of tbe scope of Mr 
Colombo’s dealings. 

But Mr Kurt Rath, Lloyds’ 
Lugano credit manager, told the 
court he informed Mr MombeUi 
that Mr Colombo’s transactions 
were reaching alarming propor¬ 
tions. 

Lloyds’ London representa¬ 
tives at the rrial said they did 
not see all the records relating 
to foreign transactions in 
Lusano. Lloyds introduced a 
unified system of recording only 
after rhe loss had been 
discovered. 

The judge said the trial* 
which had been expected to end 
tomorrow, would probably last 
until Friday. Under Swiss court 
practice, defendants do not 
enter pleas until the evidence 
has been heard.—Reuter. 


Courage to build 
£36m brewery 
on Reading site 

By David Young 

Courage has abandoned plans 
to close its breweries in London, 
Reading and Bristol and replace 
them with one new brewery on 
a site somewhere between 
London and Reading. 

Instead it is tn retain produc¬ 
tion in London and Bristol and 
to replace the existing brewery 
in Reading town centre with a 
new £J6m brewery nn the edge 
of the town, near the M4 motor¬ 
way. 

The new proposals will not 
affect the Courage brewerv at 
Plymouth or the John Smith 
brewery at Tadcaster. although 
it will mean chat the beer can¬ 
ning plant at Alton, Hamp¬ 
shire, will close with operations 
being transferred to the new 
Reading development. 

The original expansion pro¬ 
gramme would have resulted in 
one big hrewery in the south 
The new Reading brewery' 
will have a capacity of one and 
a half million barrels a year. 


Housebuilding 
improved 
in September 

Housebuilding in both the 
public and private sector 
recovered in September, after 
tbe slight dip in August, 
according to figures published 
yesterday by the Department 
of the Environment. 

Public sector starts rose 
from 14.000 to 16,000. com¬ 
pletions from 12.000 to 14.000. 
Private sector starts increased 
marginally, from 12.700 in 
August tn 13.000. Private 
completions were up from 
12,000 to 13,000. 

Taking three-month totals 
and discounting normal season¬ 
al variations, the largest single 
improvement was in private- 
sector starts. For tbe months 
July to September they were 
67 "per ceot up on the same 
period a year ago. when rhere 
was a low level of starts. 

Combined private and public 
sector totals, starts in the third 
quarter were up 12 per cent 
nn rhe previous quarter and 
39 per cent on a year earlier.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 

Chemical industry case on pollution 



From Mr Af. E. Trowbridge 
Sir, Your diarist (October 21) 
does less ti™ justice ® d* 
United Kingdom case that EEC 
pollution control standards 
should take account, of the 
acnxal needs and ccnamonsOT 
the location of A® plant. The 
chemical industry opposes fixed 
discharge levels but favours 
consistent environmental 

criteria- 

This has been wen known tor 
many years and reflects the 
thinking behind United_ King¬ 
dom environmental 'legislation 

since the early 1950s. . This 
responsible approach has en¬ 
abled us to achieve excellent 
standards in the United King¬ 
dom at optimum cost to the 
country^ economy. 

How the Docks 
Board really 
operates 

From Sir Hvmphrev Browne 
Sir. Mr Donald Royal, who has 
now written twice to your paper 
about the British Transport 
Docks Board (October 10 and 
28». is so completely misin¬ 
formed about the board that I 
must ask for an opportunity to 
supplement Sir Arthur Kirby’s 
letter (October 11). 

First. the board is not a 
monopoly. Our ports. handle 
25 per cent of United Kingdom 
overseas trade, and we face 
keen competition from other 
port authorities. We do not 
therefore have a captive home 
market. Second, he seems to 
rfaink that we administer the 
Thame* Estuary—not so. • 

Furthermore, he is apparently 
unaware of the outstanding 
success of rhe Docks Board 
pom such as Southampton, 
which is handling increasing 
quanr<ties of container traffic, 
including cargoes trans-shipped 
to and from rhe Continent for 
loading into deep sea vessels. 

As far as. Felixstowe is con¬ 
cerned. the board's reason for 
wishing to acquire rhe port is 
that it has potential and is 
suitable for furrher investment 
and expansion. Hie Felixstowe 
Dock and Railway Company’s 
directors have expressed their 
confidence in the British Trans¬ 
port Docks Board’s plans for 
the future of the port and have 
unanimously recommended ac¬ 
ceptance nf rhe board’s offer. 
Yours faithfully.

Meaningless 

percentages 

From-Mr-T^G,-Barker - .. 

Sir. I recently corresponded 
with the South Eastern Ga$ 
Board about an increase in tbe 
price per therm charged for gas 
which they supply to a small 
commercial installation that I 
own. The price had been raised 
from 5.08p t&9.(10p—ie, by 3.92p 
on 5.08p, which works out at 
77.16 per cent. 

Believe it or not, however, 
the Gas Board solemnly i n- 
formed roe that this represented 
an increase of 43.55 per cent. 
In other words, they reckoned 
the actual rise in price f332p) 
as a proportion not of tbe old 
price (5.08p) but of the new one 
(9.00p). arriving thereby at a 
totally meaningless resedr. 

It would be interesting to 
know. Sir, bow many of the 
percentage increase figures, 
relating to wages, prices, taxes, 
rates of inflation and what have 
you, rbat government depart¬ 
ments and ‘ nationalized in¬ 
dustries issue to the public 
from time to time are genuine, 
and how many are calculated 
on this phoney basis in order 
to make things look better than 
they are.

Appling blanker uniform

Behind this highly technical

important question of principle. 
The British case implies that 
each region and locality should

A howler in the inflation 
accounting debate? 


From Mr D. R. Fairhaim 
Sir. It is disturbing to see 
writers so eminent as Professor 
Merrett and Mr Sykes in their 
article (October 201' discussing 
the case for CPP accounting by 
the use of an argument and 
example based upon an obvious 
schoolboy howler. 

They have suggested that a 
cash and carry business whose 
sole asset has increased in value 
by £250,000 should not add the 
whole or CPP fraction of this 
gain to its accounting profit, as 
the change in wealth may be 
minus £1.4m under circum¬ 
stances where the value of the 
going business to an investor 
has fallen by char amount. 

This is to confuse the posi¬ 
tion of a corporate entity and 
its individual shareholders. 
These are legally and in prac¬ 
tice quite distinct. 

The purpose of company 
accounting is to measure tbe 
profit and loss position of com¬ 
panies, not that of the share¬ 
holders collectively. The correct 
assessment of the profits of 1CI 
is wholly independent of 
changes in tbe stock market 
valuation of the company; 


Enough said... 

From Mr R. G. Lassen 
Sir, Fascinating though the de¬ 
bate on inflation accounting un¬ 
doubtedly is, may I express, 
through your columns, the wish 
that it should not continue for 
too long ? 

. Tbe way ahead must surely 
lie io the acceptance of the 
Sandilands proposals and rhe 
immediate burial of SSAP7 on 
inflation accounting which must 


assessment nf the financial 
gains or losses of individual i 

shareholders is on the I 

hand concerned only with the * 
stock market value. 

Confusion of the rwn is bound 
to yield a muddled view of tbe 
benefits of CPP as against CC 
accounting. Tbe corporate en. 
city running the cash and cam 
business has a clear net gain tf 
£150,000 on the original invest¬ 
ment. This is nnt inconsistent 
with tiie shareholders’ losing 
duo ugh a sharp decline in the 
intangible value, often blown 
as goodwill, but not included in 
a company’s accounting. 

Goodwill derives from the 
evdlurion of future profit potea- 
tial; asset valuation dnes not 
When, therefore, Merrett and 
Sykes require Martin Gibbs to 
demonstrate, that the revalued 
asset will yield increased cash 
flows, they assume he has been 
victim of the same confusion 
as themselves. He has not.

Highlights from the Chairman's Statement 
and the Report & Accounts 


“Spread the good word 
about our activities” 

"I have always felt that the majority of 
Shareholders in Public Companies have a 
little more feeling about their investment 
than mere speculation. Our Company is the 
type which does not necessarily require a 
boom period for good results. Neither is it 
unduly concerned in times of trade reces¬ 
sion. VVe operate best under an expanding 
economic climate that is ideal to our 
modern way of life. However, being purely 
and simply a service industry, we do need 
goodwill everywhere, and I ask all our 
Shareholders to spread the good word 
about our activities, and influence, 
wherever and whenever possible, business 
in our direction.' I assure you that everyone 
who works in B.C.A. will be doing just 
that.”

Bur in a year when Kwik

at the expense of margins, the 
results are only a disappoint¬ 
ment in the context of its past 
performance. With sales volume

it has been left to infla tion and

Having sprat some E21$m buy¬ 
ing minority stakes in Manches¬ 
ter liners and its parent Fur¬ 
ness Withy, Eurocanadian . Ship- 
holdings’ acquisitive - campaign 
in this country has come to an 
uneasy hair. Its plot remains 
the same, though. It does not 
want to take over" Furness 
Withy in which it has a near 
30 per cent stake, and says it 
has not got the money to do 
so even if it did. But it does 
want Furness to come to some 
arrangement, or better’ still to 
divest itself of control of Man¬ 
chester Liners in which Euro- 
canadian -holds around 37 per 
cent, tiie idea being that the 
Norm Atlantic container opera¬ 
tions of Eorocanadian and Man¬ 
chester would together be 
more powerful force to deal 
with fierce and developing com¬ 
petition. 

The difficulty, which Emo¬ 


tion from the Furness 


ted ideas - of rationalising its 
North Atlantic business with 
Enrocanadsan and turned down 
-die idea of Eurocanadkm board 
representation, the United King¬ 
dom authorities appear to be 
unlikely to go along with any 
contested situation. The Office 
of Fair Trading, for instance, 
is apparently considering a ref¬ 
erence to the Monopolies Com¬ 
mission. The idea, then, is to 
wait and meanwhile try to con¬ 
vince Furness Withy, its insti¬ 
tutional shareholders particu¬ 
larly-and the United Kingdom 
authorities especially that' dose 
collaboration between Euro- 
Canadian and Manchester would 
be to the common good. 

So Eurocanadian, a Bermuda-' 
based company, is now telling 
everyone that it is part-of the 
Intercast group controlled by 
Mr i Frank Narby, a Canadian 
living -in Switzerland. If all 
goesrto plan, Canadian National 
Railways, a. Crown corporation, 
will this week become an 18 
per cent holder at a cost of 
C$12m. That will leave Mr 
Narby and his family, with 61 
per ceiff and Mr Donald Web¬ 
ster, a wealthy Canadian and 
his. Helix Investments with 21 
per cent of a b u s iness which 
on the bass of the CN invest¬ 
ment is vyorth some C$67m. 

It has a tiny asset base and, 
of course, as yet no ships. But 
it does earn good profits. Aver¬ 
age post-tax proms over the 
three years- to 1975-76 are put 
at C$10-12m, and there is appar¬ 
ently no problem about financ¬ 
ing the investments in Furness 
and Manchester. a . 

Further aggression is un¬ 
likely to get EurQcanadian any¬ 
where. now, and it apparently 
recognizes this. An appeal to 
Furness shareholders is thus 
probably of low priority at the 
moment though not ruled out.

Kingdom authorities could well 


As the mtricacies of the Slater Walker-Haw Par deal are unravelled 

some of the reasons for dis enchantment 
felt by the Singapore financial community- 



argues for 
better Slater terms 


The thoughts of the Singapore 
authorities, as transmitted to 
London in the last few days now 
appear to he dwelling on the 
whole of the Slater "Walker 
operation in the Far East. 

The references to asset strip¬ 
ping -and talk of substan ti al 
profits made by the group be¬ 
tween 1971, when it gained con- 
trol of Haw Par, and the middle 
of 1974, when it sold its: *6 per 
cent stake to Charter Consoli¬ 
dated the mining house and 
Ivory & Sime, the Edinburgh 
based fund management group. 

When Slater Walker went into 
Haw Far, it sold its bank and 
newspaper. The , Singapore 
Government' gave its permission 
at tiie riuie, but has since ex¬ 
pressed anger at the disposals. 
Slater Walker then proceeded 
with a complicated series of 
deals, which featured, large in. 
the controversy surrou nd i ng its 
abortive merger -with ■.Hill 
Samuel, and continued until its 
great d ash for -cash at the end 
of 1973. , 

The crucial deal 1 in Slater 
Walker’s withdrawal from the 
Far East, was' the sale of- ifr 46 
pec cent • holding in Slater 
Walker WnugVnng ; .(the former 
Kwan Loong) to Havr Par, in 
which it-still, at that tune, held 
a strategic bolding. 

Although Slater -Walker, has 
never been popular in-Singa¬ 
pore, it is the group's method 
of disengagement rather than 
the' scale of its activities. that 
have generated the., political 
heat which in turn fuelled the 
controversy arising out of the 
Pernas arrangements, and pub¬ 
lic awareness of Spydaris 
existence. 

That withdrawal is also im¬ 
portantly linked to the £14m 
loan which Slater Walker made 
to Haw Par. This loan, first 
mentioned when Ivory & Sime 
and Charter bought the Slater 
shares and Mr Richard’ Tar ling 
resigned as chairman, was never 
publicly revealed as ^ having 
come’from the group. When 
news of the loan leaked out, it 
was thought that it was much 
smaller—of the order of $13J>m 
(about £6$m). 

Only last week did it become 
clear that the full amount of 
the facility, specified originally 
in two tranches, had been taken • 
up. With £7m due for repayment 


early Dexr year ir is clear chat 
Haw Par is in no position to 
repay it at the moment. Mean¬ 
while. there is pressure on the 
new Slater Walker board to re- 
negotiate. 

The reason why Singapore is 
up in arms about the loan, is 
that it is arguable that Haw 
Par paid Slater Walker too 
much for acquiring its stake in 
Slater Walker Hongkong, which 
eventually depended on the 
contentious £14m_ 

When, at the beginning of 
November. 1973. the deal be¬ 
tween Slater Walker and Haw 
Par w as ne gotiated, the Singa¬ 
pore company was not particu¬ 
larly liquid. The Slater stake 
cost Haw Par HKS160m 
(£15.4m), half to be paid when 
the deal -was signed and half 
six months later. 

.Haw Par’s balance sheet at 
the end of December 1973 
showed cash of just Singapore 
$3.7m (£725,000), loans and 
deposits of Singapore $91m 
(£18m) and overdrafts of 
Socgapore $165m (£32m). But 
Slater Walker Hongkong, accor¬ 
ding to the balance sheet pub¬ 
lished .in the general offer 
document of the following May, 
bad just netted some HKS73m 
cash f£7m) from disposals 
made the previous November. 

That cash facilitated the 
first payment to Slater Walker 
Securities by Haw Par on the 
purchase of the 46 per cent 
holding. 

Then there was the problem 
of the. second half payment to 
Slater Walker, which fell due 
at around the time the group 
was selling out its Haw Par 
holding to Charter and the 
Ivory & Sime trusts. 

The HK$8thn payment 
(£7.7m) already received by 
Slater, then came back as the 
first part of the eventual £14m 
loan to facilitate payment of 
the second tranche by Haw Par. 

Meanwhile, the Singapore 
Securities Industry Council was 
concerned about the deal 
Whether it was general resent¬ 
ment of Slater, or concern at 
what his departure from the 
Far East scene might entail, or 
again, the dramatic fall in. the 
Hang Seng index over this 
period, the market in Singapore 
did not like the deal. 

Slater Walker Hongkong 
found grave difficulty in re¬ 


newing its shortterm borrow¬ 
ings (shown in the balance 
sheet for September, 1973, az 
HKS76m). 

When, in June, Slater Walker 
announced the sale of its 25 
per cent bolding in Haw Par 
for around £10m cash, reference 
was made to the provision of 
new funding facilities, and at 
this point Slater Walker lent a 
further $ 13.5m (£6.4m) to re- 
place the money market funds 
that bad dried up. 

So Slater Walker had bad to 
turn the cash realized from the 
sale of its SWS Hongkong stake 
into a loan to Haw Par. It was 
not appreciated ax the time that 
th?« deal was making no con¬ 
tribution to Slater Walker’s 
liquidity. In the eyes of the 
Singapore financial community, 
the result was that Haw Par it¬ 
self was left a shadow of its 
former self. 

Slater Walker got HKS4.40 
for each of its SWS Hongkong 
shares on completion of the deal 
in mid-December 1973. From 
November 9, when the offer 
was generally announced, to 
January 9, the date of the 
official publication, the Hang 
Seng index plummeted from 
613.16 to 440.62, a fall of over a 
third. 

The formal document states : 
“If the market price of SWS 
Hongkong had moved in line 
with the Hang Seng index, on 
January 9 it would have been 
HKS3.48.” That index movement 
would have been sufficient to 
wipe some HK570ra from SWS 
Hongkong’s investments of 
HK$230xn, and probably more 
since that balance sheet was 
struck the previous September 
and the index had fallen 
heavily even by the following 
December. 

No one can blame Mr Slater 
for the fall in the index, but 
Singapore is questioning the 
whole deal in the light of the 
desperate problems that Haw 
Par, one of its best known com¬ 
panies, now faces. 

It is uncertain how the new 
Slater Walker board will 
approach the problem of the 
loan, but there is evidently 
strong feeling in Singapore that 
it should be renegotiated on the 
grounds that the deal was not 
equitable to Haw Par.

Eight years after being estab¬ 
lished in its present form by 
tiie signing of the Treaty of 
East -African Co-operation, -the 
East - African'-Community : can 
expect some important chang e s 
from the review of tiie treaty 
now to be undertaken by a high- 
level commission. 

The appointment of the. com¬ 
mission, with Mr William 
Demas, Trinidadian president of 
the "Caribbean Development 
Bank, as its chairman, recog¬ 
nizes the strains that have de¬ 
veloped in the community—des¬ 
pite the early hopes that it 
would provide a lasting frame¬ 
work for economic cooperation, 
including a common market, 
linking Kenya, Tanzania and 
Uganda.. 

In fact, the euphoria that 
greeted the conclusion of foe 
treaty in 1967 has long dis¬ 
appeared. At that time Zambia, 
Ethiopia, Burundi and Somalia 
all expressed a wish to join the 
East African Community, and a 
vision was created of a vast area 
in which trade would flow freely 
across national boundaries, ana 
where, economic development 
could be coordinated, with key 
industries, serving tiie whole 
region, shared out among the 
member-states. 

Today the question of en¬ 
larging the community is no 
longer a practical one, and 
while the adjoining states have 
not formally withdrawn their 
applications for membership, 
no real progress has been made 
on them. . ;• :• 

The community has faced 
problems from foe start, des¬ 
pite the long history, of eco¬ 
nomic cooperation in East 
Africa ( inchiding a common 
market) dating far back beyond 
independence ■ in foe early 


1960s. Basically, foe problems 
arise from . the same causes 
which stifled moves to estab¬ 
lish a full-fledged federation of 
'East Africa in 1963—an unviH- 
jngness to- cede even a limited 
degree of autonomy to foe cen¬ 
tral body, and specifically the 
inability of three young states, 
desperately short of finance for 
their own needs, to provide a 
free flow of funds into the cotn- 
munify (or between community 
organizations operating in three 
separate states). 

This has produced crises such 
as one'which t h is year halted 
railway passenger services in 
Kenya and Uganda, because the 
railways bad no funds to buy 


Charles Harrison 
reports from Nairobi 


spare parts for locomotives and 
rolling stock. Suppliers of 
other goods and services to 
community organizations have 
had to wait for months to be 
paid. 

Such problems have depres¬ 
sed morale in the community 
services, and this has been one 
of the most serious aspects of 
the prevailing uncertainty. Yer 
rbe community has survived, 
and in fact only one department 
has been split off and taken 
over separately by the three 
states. That is income tax, 
where -there were, anyway, 
special reasons, since each state 
wanted to manipulate its rates, 
allowances and so on to suit its 
own needs. 

The common market has sur¬ 
vived changes in the trading 
pattern, although Kenya is now 


the only East African state to 
permit the free transfer of cash 
to its partners. Most trade with¬ 
in East Africa is now subject to 
import licensing, - 

The- volume of trade within 
East Africa continues to in¬ 
crease, despite the difficulties. 
In 1970, Kenya imported goods 
worth 16 million Kenya pounds 
from Uganda and Tanzania, and 
exported 31.4 million pounds 
worth to them. In 1974, Kenya 
imported from them only 13 3 
million pounds, but exported 
483 million pounds worth, 
despite the efforts of Tanzania 
and Uganda to reduce their 
purchases from Kenya. 

Kenya, in fact, increased her 
exports of manufactured goods 
to her common market partners 
by over 50 per cent over the 
four years. Tanzania increased 
hers by a similar proportion 
(but from a smaller base), but 
Uganda’s exports fell by more 
than two-thirds, mainly due to 
the disruption following the 
military coup and the subse¬ 
quent expulsion of Asians. 

However, it is not from the 
problems of trade that the pres¬ 
sure has built up for a review 
of the Treaty of Cooperation, 
but from the difficulties affect¬ 
ing the corporations which run 
the railways, posts and telecom¬ 
munications, airways and har¬ 
bours services, and, to a lesser 
extent, from problems affecting 
the community headquarters 
and services such as civil avia¬ 
tion, customs and medical 
research. Their inability to cope 
with currency and other restric¬ 
tions has produced the realiza¬ 
tion that changes must be made 
if the community is to operate 
meaningfully. 

In mid-November, the newly 
appointed review commission is 
due to hold its first meeting.

Antonio Castilla is spending six 
weeks away from home on busi¬ 
ness. By foe time he gets back, 
he’ll he pleased' if his house¬ 
keeping bill hasn’t gone up by 
more than a fifth. 

Castilla is senior partner of 
accountants Price Waterhouse’s 
Santiago, Chile office, and 
among other things, president 
of the 20,000-stfong Colegio de 
Contadores de Chile, the coun¬ 
try’s sole professional body for 
accountants, as well as of his 
. country’s confederation of pro¬ 
fessional men. 

He is in London on Price 
Waterhouse business, in the 
middle of a schedule that takes 
in a meeting in El Salvador of 
the Inter-American Accounting 
Association and another in 
Brazil of the, roughly trans¬ 
lated, Latin-American Con¬ 
federation of Professionals. 

Castilla is also one of the 
people the post-Allende Chilean 
government called in for advice 
on inflation accounting in a 
country where it is hoped that 
inflation will this year be held 
to between 200 and 300 per cent 
—-an achievement indeed, if th e 
present Pinochet regime’s 
figures are to be believed, the 
rate in 1973—the last year of 


Allende’s regime—reached 508 
per cent. 

The Chilean said that we in 
Britain were, after Sandilands, 
at last working on roughly the 
same lines as his countrymen.

-Harold Cooper, chairman and 
majority shareholder, has made 
Pierre Pouillot, the 45-year-old 
head of Lee Cooper, France,, 
group managing director of tbe 
entire Lee Cooper jeans and 
sportswear group. 

PouiJIct is to exerase fins 
responsibility from France. 


Pouillot held an executive 
job with Amiens clothing com¬ 
pany Fusilier in 1963, when 
Fusilier sold out to Lee Cooper. 

Pouillot was. then engaged in 
expanding the new owner’s in¬ 
terests in France, particularly 
in tiie jeans market. As the 
original Amiens outfit, Lee 
Cooper, France, now operates 
factories outside Amiens and 
Paris, runs the group interests 
in Holland and is establishing a 
factory in Tunisia. 

The group’s “home" factory 
is ar Romford, Essex, and jt 
- manufactures under licence in 
countries as far flung as Aus¬ 
tralia, all of which are looked 
after from foe Sackville Street, 
London, headquarters by 
Harold Cooper’s son, Michael. 

Cairo promise 

While Beirut, tbe presumed 
financial capital of the Middle 
East, was yesterday blowing 
itself apart. the Egyptian 
premier Mamdoub Salem was 
promising to make Cairo once 
more an—if not foe—financial 
capital of that part of foe 
world. 

Salem told parliament that 
there was to be a resuscitation 
of the stock exchange, liqui¬ 
dated with the introduction of 
socialism 13 years ago, and 
presear currency and bureau- 
era tic restrictions would be 
smoothed out. 

A committee is to be formed 

to find ways of regulating tbe 


market, while a new law would 
be framed unifying the prevail¬ 
ing dual exchange rates which 
were discouraging foreign in¬ 
vestors. 

At tbe official rate, one 
Egyptian pound is worth $2.56, 
while at the incentive rate it is 
worth $1.6. 

Camera shy 

EMI, which has long been 
operating double, triple and 
quadruple cinema complexes, is 
now _ thinking about opening 
Britain's first drive-in cinema. 
Bob Webster, managing director 
of EMI Cinemas, sees “a risk 
but a great opportunity ”. 

EMI has-.looked at rites at 
Elstree, Sandown Park, Ches- 
sington Zoo, as well as others 
in tbe north, and how have one 
firmly in mind. 

Now begins the long battle 
with local authorities and pres¬ 
sure groups. 

The seven-year search has 
turned up a spot with good 
access for motorway traffic and 
within easy reach of a popula¬ 
tion* of about 2j million. 

If all goes well, it would 
house twin screens, and there 
would be no need to hire q 
baby sitter because you can' 
park the kids in the back of the 
car with you. 

The English climate would be 
a snag, not only because of the 
rain but because of the long, 
light summer nights. 


Mr Burger’s money r j 

multiplier ^ 


Consider tbe following sent¬ 
ences from the Governor of foe 
Bank of England’s recent 
speech (on October 16) at foe 
Mansion House: “I do not 
doubt that it (monetary policy) 
has an important and powerful 
influence on foe economy ... I 
also believe that, in view of foe 
overriding importance of 
moderating _ inflation ... we 
should strictly maintain a 
moderate pace of monetary 
expansion.. .. 

“ Tbe most recent figures, 
coupled with the rise in interest 
rates, are indications that it is 
becoming more difficult to 
maintain so moderate a pace. ... 
Until its (foe public sector bor¬ 
rowing requirement’s) growth 
can be halted and then re¬ 
versed, we shall need ro exer¬ 
cise especial vigilance iu our 
monetary management ” (my 
italics). 

I wish to draw particular 
attention to foe two italicized 
words because they are vividly 
expressive oF foe Bank of Eng¬ 
land’s (and indeed most central 
banks') traditional conviction 
that the money supply cannot 
be controlled with any certainty 
by the national monetary 
authorities. Mr Richardson 
speaks of monetary expansion 
as though he were the Com¬ 
missioner of a foe Metropolitan 
Police speaking about crime 
statistics, a worried man talking 
abour his brave but probably 
hopeless attempts to bold back 
a tidal ware of external forces 
beyond his control. 

To criticize this attitude is 
not, of course, in any way to 
criticize the Governor for going 
as far as he did in standing up 
to the dangerously inflationary 
drift of government fiscal poli¬ 
cies. That was brave, not 
necessarily hopeless and, some 
would say, long overdue. 

But to control the money 
supply is not difficult and does 
not require vigilance. It is easy, 
though it may well be painful, 
and requires only a genuine 
wish to control it. 

The Governor may perhaps 
have meant, not that it was dif¬ 
ficult, but that it was painful 
in foe sense that controlling 
the money supply against a 
background of a very large 
budget deficit is likely to in¬ 
volve a sharp increase in in¬ 
terest rates. But his statement 
(that the recent rise in interest 
rates was part of the evidence 
that control was getting more 
difficult) suggests that he be¬ 
lieves control to be difficult 
even with higher interest rates. 

The monetary authorities 
directly control foe supply, in¬ 
deed the creation, of most of 
those instruments which count 
as reserve assets for the bank¬ 
ing system. In so far as they 
do not directly control the 
supply of money at call and of 
local authority and fine com¬ 
mercial bills, they can still con¬ 
trol foe total of reserve assets 
by forcing Jong-term bonds on 
the market in exchange for cash 
(or tbe commercial banks' 
balances at .the Bank of Eng¬ 
land), thereby offsetting any 
increased supply of reserve 
assets which are not directly 
created by the authorities 

The total of reserve of assets 
combined with the minimum re¬ 
serve ratio (of 12J per cent) 
which the commercial banks are 
obliged to maintain determines 
the maximum amount of liabili¬ 
ties, ie, deposits, which the 
banks can accept. The toral of 
deposits, together with notes 
and coins, are the money supply. 
So the authorities control the 
maximum level of tbe _ money 
supply at any moment in time 
and therefore foe change in 


that maximum level through 
time. . .5- 

Tbe actual money supply 
may indeed fall below ''the 
maximum and then catch up 
again, thus for a while produc¬ 
ing a faster growth rate foacf 
the growth -in foe total' of 
reserve assets (or, as they more, 
vividly call it in foe United^ 
States, the “ monetary base.’* 
or “high-powered money"). 
But even this effect can be 
prevented, if desirable, by an. 
offsetting adjustment in foe. 
permitted growth of reserve, 
assets or by changing the mirn -7 
mum pertained reserve ratio.- 
This is relevant at foe- 
moment when the ratio - of 
reserves to liabilities has been 
allowed to rise berween Majr 
and September from 13 i per. 
cent to almost 16 per cent; 
chiefly because of a huge, m-t 
crease from £735m to £1,965m.

in foe supply of Treasury bills? 
Eut for normal medium-term 
purposes controlling the* ,, amn i p- 
tary base ensures primary to*t; r 
trol over the growth of the 
money supply because it neve#- 
pa vs the commercial banks <to 
hold more liquid assets, of ther 
type which counr as reserve 
assets, than they have to. 

A most useful study of thi'tf 
relationship—between fob' 

monetary base and the monby: 
supply—is offered in the cur¬ 
rent (October) issue of that 
prolific journal, foe monthly 
Review of the Federal Reservd 
Bank of St Louis, which shrine 
of monetarism is a constituent 
member of the United States 
Femoral Reserve System. Albert. 
E. Burger has studied American 
data for foe years 1954-73 amt 
concludes that “ with a 6 per¬ 
cent growth rate of tiie mone¬ 
tary b?se over a 12-month 
period there would be a 95 pec. 
cent probability that foe growth- 
of money over this period 
would be in foe range of 4 to 
8 por cent 

He points put ih?t over much- 
shorter periods, such as moorth 
to month changes, the relation¬ 
ship is much less secure.-For 
this reason he exhorts central- 
banks not ro be deflected from 
their chosen policy for foe rate 
of expansion of the monetary 
base if in foe first month.or 
two the money supply seams, 
to be diverging from the. in¬ 
tended path. 

Mr Burger suggests that even- 
more accurate results can - be 
achieved by developing tech¬ 
niques for forecasting varia¬ 
tions in what he calls the 
“money multiplier”, which-is 
merelv a compendious term 
for all those factors which cause 
the growth of the money sun- 
ply not to be exactly foe same 
as foe growth in foe money 
bnse. 

He shows that over the past 
20 years foe actual growth of 
foe money supply for all 
periods of three months nr 
more tended to be verv close 
indeed to what tbe Federal 
Reserve would have predicted 
it in advance to be had they at 
foe time applied “money mul¬ 
tiplier” estimates to foe actual 
increases in foe money be«e 
which they injected at foe 
time. 

The results dn not necessarily 
travel across the Atlantic; but 
it is the kind of study wfu'ch 
would enhance the value of the 
Bank of England Quarterly 
Bulletin.

★ Substantial increase in both sales and prolils against Ihe 
previous year. 

★ On the 13th December. 1974. we acquired ihe N.K. Watch- 
case Co. Ltd., manufacturers of gold watch cases. Your 
Directors decided to amalgamate N.K. with E*calibur 
Jeive/lery to form one Company. The acquisition of N.K. not 
only makes us self sufficient lor gold watch cases, but adds 
an additional line to our existing range ot items. 

★ Currently sales are running at a higher level than this time 
last year, but under present conditions it is extremely 
hazardous to make forecasts lor the current year.

Future 

Your Group enjoys a strong liquid position in both our 
main divisions Pools and Singo Hoy/ever raising profit levels 
during this fierce inflationary period, will prove to be ditiicutt. 

Our prospects for growth are. I believe, mamfy to be found 
in Bingo. Consequently, every endeavour will be made to use 
our considerable resources io accelerate our expansion in this 
market. 


New rental business is be¬ 
coming harder ro find, che 
directors of Telephone Rentals 
report, but they arc staixling 
behind their previous forecast 
that this year’s profits wiH be 
“ much tu line " with the record 
profits of £7.5m before tax of 
1974. 

The first half has gone fairly 
well. Pre-tax profits of 
£3.572,000 show a slight im¬ 
provement over the comparable 
figure which has been adjusted 
to £3,546.000 to allow for ad¬ 
justments made in the annual 
i accounts and Foreign exchange 
■ rate variations in 1974. The 
interim payment is lJ5p a 
share again, or 1.92p gross. 

A big boost to turnover came 
in the sales and other services 
area, where volume rose from 
13,484.0!X) to £5.017.000. Rental 
Turnover showed a less 5trik : ng 
increase —from £G.2m to £7m. 

Net profirs of £2.285.000 com¬ 
pare irifh £2.229.000 for the 
first Half of last year, and after 
deducting minorities — down 
from £18.000 ro £8.000—artribur- 
ab*e profits arc up from 
£2.211,000 ro E2.277.00. 

Graig Shipping 
in heavy loss 

Hit by the slump in freight 
rates and a boom in crew's 
wages, Graig Shipping reports 
a pre-tax loss of £624,000 for 
the half year to September 30. 
Thi* compares with a pre-tax 
profit of £422,000 in the same 
period last year, and a full 
year’s profit of El.05m. 

In May and Julv the group 
sold two ships For El.75m, which 
left a surplus of E1.09m after 
tax. Mr D. Williams, chairman, 
says there is unlikely to be a 
quick improvement in freight 
rates, and he cannot forecast 
for the year. Despite the loss 
the group has only cut its 
interim dividend from 6p to 5p. 

Meyer pays£1.6m for 
rest of Keizer Venesta 

Britain’s biggest timber group 
Montague L. Meyer has now 
taken complete control of 
Keizer Venesta, the umber 
importer. The remaining 50 per 
cent stake was bought from 
; Venesta International for £1.6m 
cash and an interest-free loan 
of £450,000. Meyer paid £2.4ni 
for the original stake in May. 
The loan is _ for a period not 
exceeding eight months with 
repayment covered by a 
banker’s guarantee. Keizer’s 
pre-tax profit for the year to 
March 31 was £649,000, and net 
tansibfe assets then were about 
£ 4.95m. 

(VI James to rally 

Road haulage, waste disposal 
packaging and storage group 
Maurice James Holdings has 
fallen back, but it looks to a- 
significant recovery in the rest 
of the year. On turnover for 
the half vear to June 30 down 
from £1.37m to £1.14m, pre-tax 
profits fell from £182.000 to 
£155.000. The interim dividend 
is 1.5p gross again. Watvers 
are made on 1.06m shares. 
Profits in the latest half were 
affected by the sale of James 
Paper Sacks, but the second 
half will include newcomer 
Joshua Bigwood. 

Duckwari suspended 

The shares in Duckwari Tea 
& Rubber Estares have been 
suspended pending details of 
reorganization. Duckwari means 
ro extend activities in Britain, 
initially in provisions. Further 
cxp a nsion depends on the avail¬ 
ability of working capital, and 

Atlas Stone 


receipt of compensation from 
Sri Lanka. The board also pro¬ 
poses to provide now for an 
increase in capital. 

E Ireland in big 
interim loss 

Gloomy news from civil 
engineering and building con¬ 
tractor Ernest Ireland includes 
a steep slide into che red for 
tbe half year to June of some 
£950,000. This loss went against 
a profit of £747,000 before tax. 
There is no interim dividend 
after 0.75p last time, but there 
are hopes of a final. The losses 
chiefly arose from tbe writing- 
down of developments and land 
nf about £ 1.05m. though the 
construction side did well. The 
outcome for die full year 
should show a considerable 
improvement over the first six 
months. 

The loss of newcomer Weir 
Construction was slashed and 
a modest overall surplus should 
soon be achieved. Ireland has 
also secured orders for £9m of 
work at adequate margins in 
the United Arab Emirates. 

EHTT/Yule Catto stake 

Estates House Investment 
Trust has bougbt 1.6m ordinary 
shares in Vule C-atto, giving it 
11.3 per cent of the vote. Yule 
Catto is principally in rubber 
and palm oil, but has Interests 
in moulding and fabrication of 
thermostatic materials. It also 
has a clearing, forwarding and 
general ageucy business in 
Singapore. Last year it in¬ 
creased pre-tax profits from 
£667,100 ro E753.200. anti 
hoisted profits in the six montiu 
to Aoril 30 from £162.300 to 
£305.000. 

Associated Leisure 

After a dip in the 12 months 
to March from £l.S4m to 
£1.39m before tax. the expected 
recovery at Associated Leisure 
shows up in the half year to 
September 14 last. Pre-tax 
profits rose from £ 1.06m to 
£ 1.13m after interest charges 
fell from £203.000 ro £163,000. 
Turnover improved slightly 
from £6.6m to £6.9m. Attribut¬ 
able profits however fell from 
£783.000 to £630,000. The 
interim dividend is L6p gross 
against 1.57p. If trading holds 
steady this winter, full-year 
results should be satisfactory- 

No final after big 
loss at In v & Property 

After charging £687,000 of 
interest against £305,000, In¬ 
vestment Sc Property Holdings 
reports a pre-tax loss of £_L05m 
for the year ended April 30. 
This compares with a pre-tax 
profit of £305,000. There is no 
final payment to follow last 
year’s total of 1.71p gross. Turn¬ 
over slumped from £3.8ra to 
£2.1m. After tax and all other 
charges the attributable loss is 
£1.12m against a profit oi 
£143,000. 

Smart beat forecast 

in the year to July 31 the 
pre-tax profits of Edinburgh- 
based J. Smart (ContractorsI 
climbed from £501.000 to a 
record £926,000. These compare 
well with rhe board's forecast 
in May of not less than 
£890,000. A final dividend of 
3.29p gross is being paid, com¬ 
pared with the forecast of 3.39p 
gross. This makes a total of 
4.55p gross, compared with 
4-I3p gross and the directors’ 
prediction of 4.65p gross. Un¬ 
happily. the Government's new 
dividend curbs stood in Smart's 


way. Smart is engaged in build¬ 
ing and public works contract¬ 
ing of all types. 

Whisky galore- 
but ‘ too cheap' 

Scotch whisky was being sold 
at prices so low that it was 
impossible for the seller to buy 
with the proceeds the equiva¬ 
lent quantity of new whisky. 
This is what Mr J. A. R. Mac- 
phaiL, chairman of Highland Dis¬ 
tilleries told shareholders 
yesterday in bis annual report- 
The continued harassment of 
the whisky industry in Britain 
by government. Mr Macpbail 
said, must make prospects open 
to question. 

Policy, he said, was to con¬ 
sider only projects essential to 
maintain ’operational efficiency. 
Mr Macphail added that it has 
puzzled die industry, why a unit 
of alcohol, because ir happens 
to be in Scotch whisky, was 
raxed at more than three rimes 
the rate compared with beer, 
and getting on for twice the 
rate for imported wines. 

ZCI omits dividends 

Interest receivable and other 
revenue, less provisions and 
foreign tax, of Zambia Copper 
Investments amounted to only 
383,000 (US) in the first 
quarter, ended September 30, 
1975. No dividends are declared. 
In the vear ended June 30. 1975. 
this figure stood at S 15.9m. 

ZCI has a 49 per cent interest 
in Ncbanga Copper and 12.25 
per cent of Roan Consolidated 
Mines. In the June quarter. 
Nchanga reported a net loss of 
8.5m kwacha and RCM a net 
profit of S.9m kwacha. 

The directors note that funds 
of SlfUrn {dividends accruing 
to ZCI) held in kwacha in 
Zambia and were due to be 
externalized, will remain in 
Zambia until the necessary 
foreign exchange is available. 
The company bas the assurance 
of the Zambian authorities on 
these funds. 

Bormafa battle goes on 

Support is still growing for 
the Bunn ah shareholders action 
group in its fight with the 
Government. A spokesman 
said chat of 17,000 of the largest 
shareholders so far approached, 
more than 5,000 had written 
expressing support and many 
had sent gifts to the fighting 
fund. This Friday, che action 
group is holding a meeting in 
Glasgow to report on progress 
and ask Scottish shareholders 
for their active support. 

Vickers da Costa rallies 

The profit of Vickers Da 
Costa, London stockbrokers, etc, 
profit in che year-end April 24 
slumped from £671,500 to 
£223,400 on a turnover £68-3m 
(£792ml. But according to the 
chairman, Mr Ralph Vickers, 
turnover since then has in¬ 
creased and the company has 
made an unproved profit. Busi¬ 
ness in Hongkong has recovered 
well. 

Bleak Caravans fnt 

After making a loss of 
£363.000 in the first six months 
to February 28, Caravans Inter¬ 
national thinks the full year will 
show a profit. Tlie group will 
announce its results for the year 
to August 31 on December 10. 
Last year the group reported a 
pre-tax profit of £549,000. The 
interim dividend is slashed from 
1.04p to 0.30p and the board 
says payment of a final divi-- 
dend is unlikely. 


Renewed nervousness over 
the Slater, Walker situation sent 
share prices tumbling over a 
broad front on rhe London 
stock market yesterday. 

Late in the session, there was 
a muted attempt at a rally, but 
most of the industry leader* 
were left several pence down 
on the day. 

Against a background of sus¬ 
pension fears, S}V .shares en¬ 
countered speculative selling 
and plunged by l^P to J)p 
fuirlv early. 3 hey tame back 
3p later and at the end stood 
a, 23p, a uer faJJ of 10p. They 
ranked as the most active coun¬ 
ter of the day.

Bv 11 am, the FT Index had 
j slid’ 7.4 to 352.7 and, though 
the mid-afternoon rally cut back 
the decline to 6.3 at o pin, the 
closing figure of 352.5 was 
off and the low point of the 
session. 

The fixed-interest market also 
i gave ground with opening rises 
! of up to one-quarrer being re- 
! placed with losses of the same 
order by the end. 

Worst hit among the indus- 

■ trial leaders were Glaxo, which 
: gave no ~p to 33Sp, Unilever

added complication, but by the 
end of trading the share had 
recovered sufficiently for an 
unchanged 24Sp, after 242p:

j the centre of some interest and

was better-than-expected in-

no less than 13p to 149p and 
1 reaffirmed the modest revival 
i in housebuilding which has 
been brought out by outer 
recent results in the sector,^ 

Another factor is a

1 the industry. The

Banks were led down by 
Midland (9p to Z84p), but there 
were also losses of 5p by

Allied Irish firmed the shares

If only Atlas had taken 125p 


The resistance of the Adds 
Stone directors rn the bigger 
offer from the Belgian com¬ 
pany Eiernit crumbled yester¬ 
day. The bidders were per¬ 
suaded ro allow shareholders a 
last dividend which will be paid 
as soon as the bid becomes un¬ 
conditional—probably in the 
second half nf nexi mooch. So 

against the 95p 2 t which Eternit 
launched its bid in September 
this year, shareholders arc now 
advised to accept terms which 
will give them ll5p a share and 
a dividend worth 4.6p gross. 

Thar is below the 3.3Sp a 
share gross final dividend which 
shareholders were promised as 
part of rhe defence; but with 
the 2.33p per share gross in¬ 
terim dividend which they have 
had already, it is the maximum 
payable under the government’s 
dividend limitation policy—in 
the absence of special circum¬ 
stances such as a contested bid- 
Buc shareholders still emerge 
from the business the poorer 
for the failure of the talks 
which Eternit was having with 
Atlas in the winter of 1973*74. 


At that srage Erernit was 
able to contemplate with 
equanimity the prospect of pay¬ 
ing 125p per share for Atlas 
Stone's corrugated cladding 
manufacturing capacity. 

Although Eternit is one of rhe 
world's biggest asbestos cement 
manufacturers, it has no mami- 
fpeturing capacity in the United 
Kingdom at the moment; and 
its British subsidiary, G. R. 
Speaker, imports the asbestos 
cement slates and the marble- 
like glazed wall finishes in 
which it specializes from 
Belgium. 

To do likewise for tbe corru¬ 
gated cladding which Eternit 
does make in vast quantities in 
Europe was out of the question: 
for one thing British specifica¬ 
tions are different, and for 
another the profits on such a 
high volume, low margin pro¬ 
duct—and one in which there is 
substantial British competition 
in the shape, for example, of 
Turner St NewaD—would never 
justify the exerdse. 

Under these _ circumstances 
Etorn it’s continuing interest in 
Adas—with a 9.9 per cent stake 
in tbe company being quietly 


built up as che shares fell after 
the failure of the January 1974 
talks—becomes entirely compre- 
hensible: and the only question 
for shareholders is whether 
their board might not have held 
out for more. 

But with almost two years of 
falling profits under its belt—

The dollar was marked down 
cautiously in late currency trading 
Qn the foreign exchanges yesterday 
in an initial reaction to President 
Ford’s speech 

The united States unit eased 
against sterling, which closed with 
a net gain of 20 points against 
the dollar, at $2.0685. The dollar 
also slipped to 2.5645/60 marks 
from 23685/95 earlier, and to 
2.6350/70 Swiss francs <2.6380/ 
6400), dealers said. 

Dealers said Eurodollar deposit 
interest rates edged up between 
1/16 and } percentage points, re¬ 
flecting a cautiously negative 
European assessment of Ford's 
proposals, particularly in relation 
to the possible Impact of the 
United States banking system. 

The pound’s “ effective rate ” 
was finally unchanged a£ 29.2 per 
cent. 

Gold rose 25 cents an ounce to 
5143.00.

‘Definecoffee 
policy’call 

Rio de Janeiro, Oct 29.—Brazil 
should openly define its coffee ■' 
export policy in order to speed ujp( 
market activity, the Sjicos Con-, 
xnercial Association said here. .... 

In a series of suggestions ban¬ 
ded to Senor Camilo Calazans, the,: * 
Brazilian Coffee Institute prtst- '. 
dent in Santos, the Associarion' 
said that importers who use a f ‘ 
high percentage of Brazilian cof- -’ 
fee in tiieir blends, such as rh» 
United States, Sweden and Den»- - - 
mark, may not be buying fro»;»- 
Brazil because of doubts over its . 
coffee policy. \; 

The Association called for the 
introduction of a. system Cuarah- . 
teeing prices for importers for up. 
to 60 or 90 days after shipment.-^

'‘lyear when car manufacturers, 
^hiriy British ones, must often 
N t as if they were trying .to sell 
Hors to Eskimos, it has been 
ve to follow the strategies and

;^Jie shrewdest operators in the

- <j"iuary, with a new Escort on the 
%rd boldly announced that It 
e going for a 26 per cent share 
. tarket this year, compared with 
vN. cent in 1974. That took into 
(t, the likelihood, of a slow start 
Escort.was phased out, a 
■-^jn that proved correct when, 

‘ ^s-iary, die market shaife dropped 
■i 16 per cent. _ - 

Escort arrived in March 
favourably received, though 
-?t that the prices were too high, 
'^ed upon this criticism imme- 
_ nd quickly produced a cheaper. 
A'^of the car, the Popular, which 
iTcCted a saving of £141. It proved 
brilliant stroke, the Popular 
for half of all Escort

Cortina, which now has cloth seats, carpet and heated reajr.wiodow as standard

equipment. 

shaped and give good support, I found 
them rather-, firm on the back. Con¬ 
sidering the size' of the car and the 
automatic transmission, a fuel con¬ 
sumption of 17 to 22 tnpg is not 
unreasonable; nor, when one looks at 
the opposition, is the price of £3,935. 

_ The new basic Cortina may have lost 
its chrome round the windows but 
otherwise the changes are all additions, 
notably hazard warning lights, servo 
disc brakes, heated rear window, cloth 
seats,, carpet and what manufacturers 
still quaintly call a cigar lighter. All 
of which demonstrates how well 
equipped the bread-and-butter car bag 
become; even if we have to thank the 
Japanese for bringing it about. 

The Cortina .has been (he best-selling 
car in Britain for four years -and its 


r.i.,.r_Tii*.-,w .r.inrr 


The other main advantage - is--that 
the machine 1 will fold into such a 
small and'manageable package. It-will 
go into the boot of a Mini and under 
the. bonnet of .a Beede, and while every 
other-- bicycle must pay half-fare on 
the railway, the Bickerton can travel 
for nothing on the luggage rack. ‘ 

A newcomer to the Bjckerton- will 
probably be struck by the springiness 
of frame and may wonder how 
strong and safe the 'machine is. Ms 
Bickerton. who is an engineer, retorts 
that most bicycles are six times as 
strong as 1 they need - he; he reckons 
chat his is “jus* strong enough” ana 
says that the 250 already on me roan 
have, thrown up very few defects. .. 

The one big drawback ax the.moment 
is“the- price. Mr. Bickertoh tu rns -out
